SEptember is
fasd awareness month


September is a great time to raise awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and to celebrate the strengths, talents and successes of the estimated one in twenty Americans who have a FASD.  Throughout the month of September and specifically on September 9th, which is international FASD Awareness day there are numerous ways to engage in advocacy, support, build community and raise awareness of FASD.

engage in advocacy

  • Send a letter of support for the FASD Respect Act in honor of FASD Awareness Month to your two Senators and one Representative by sending a text. Simply text the letter: PCMMYP to 50409.  If passed, the FASD Respect Act would provide much needed supports, services and interventions to the FASD Community. Learn more about the FASD Respect Act HERE.


  • Educate your organization of FASD. Do you work with educators, health professionals, the legal community, provider agencies or state agencies? NCFASD Informed supports organizations by conducting trainings and giving presentations of FASD. Programs can be in person or virtual. Program content can be tailored to suit the needs of your organization. Contact Kathy Hotelling by email or by calling 919-307-9068.
