Chapter Leader - Laura

Laura is a devoted mother of two boys with FASD. Currently, Laura is a parent representative on the Brant Community FASD Advisory Committee. She has received training from some of the most prevalent FASD experts in the field right now and feels that ongoing training and peer support for caregivers is an essential part of raising her boys. Laura strives to bring FASD awareness to those working with our kids particularly in the education field, and has provided support for various school staff and students to help them further understand the complexity of FASD. Laura has an extensive knowledge of IEPs and the IPRC process. She recognizes that, for her boys, each day brings its own challenges and celebrations. She knows that caregivers dedicate as much time as they possibly can to supporting and advocating for their loved ones and that we often don’t set aside the time we should to take care of ourselves. Having a FASD caregiver support group provides an opportunity for families in the Brant/Brantford area to connect with each other, share our stories and lived experiences, and to work toward building a FASD informed community.

WE LINK families to important networks within their communities to ensure they get the care they need and the support of families who can relate and support them.

WE UNDERSTAND the issues around child and youth mental health challenges and the stigma that prevents the work and conversations that need to happen.

WE HELP communities and families access important resources so they can begin their journey of healing.
