FASD Survey

FASD – why does it matter?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a common disability that impacts approximately 1 in 25 Albertans of all ages. FASD is a medical condition that impacts people from all walks of life. In fact, you may know people with FASD at work, in your community, or in your family.

It is our hope that by openly talking about FASD, we can reduce the stigma associated with this disability, build skills, promote wellness, and prevent FASD. We would like to hear from you about FASD, even if you do not know someone with it. Sharing your experience and perspective will help us shape FASD supports, services, and resources for Métis Albertans.

Your privacy will be protected and all answers will be anonymous.
If you require assistance to complete this survey please call 780-455-2200 or email fasd@metis.org. We will be happy to assist.
