Description

In Part 1 of my conversation with Jessica Birch, an FASD advocate and adult on the Spectrum, we covered her advocacy and journey to get a diagnosis. In Part 2 we talk about life after the diagnosis. She gives us insight on how she copes with her symptoms and what you can do as a caregiver to help your loved ones. 

In Part 2 we cover: 

  • interdependence, impulsivity, emotional regulation, expectations 
  • struggles to be taken seriously as an advocate and be accommodated 
  • importance of a diagnosis and consequences of not getting one 

I want to thank Jessica for her honesty and openness in sharing her story. I hope that by listening to this episode, your learning curve will be lessened, you can build deeper relationships with your kids and see a hopeful future. But more importantly, understand that FASD doesn’t define a person.  

With individuals like Jessica speaking up, and those who support and advocate alongside us, we are raising the voices and awareness. Change is coming.
