4 Unique Ways Canadians are Celebrating FASD Day During a Pandemic

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, FASD awareness events and activities are a little bit different this year. Here are four unique campaigns that are doing a great job of raising awareness of FASD during the pandemic.

Supporting Self-Regulation for Back to School
