The Halton and Hamilton FASD Parent & Caregiver Support Groups are pleased to announce ….
RJ Formanek, founder of the Facebook FASD online support group “Flying with Broken Wings” will be presenting …FASD – “It’s Complicated.”
Rarely have truer words been spoken, yet they fail to convey the real difficulties in talking about, and helping others understand the complex world of FASD. From the stigma that some feel, to the ethical restrictions of professionals, and dealing with all sides of this issue it really is complicated.
As a person living on the spectrum, R.J. Formanek looks to find common ground, where a core understanding of these complexities can lead to simpler conversations for all of us.
A later life diagnosis of FASD gave RJ Formanek a lifelong base of strategies when it came to thinking about FASD , and those who live with it. Combined with his own experience is the educational background that has allowed him to speak to many aspects of life with FASD, and be able to share these strategies while searching for holistic answers that address the needs of all who are impacted by FASD.
