The BSTS team was joined by the lovely Brian Philcox and Bonnie Buxton this past month. Bonnie is the author of the novel Damaged Angels, a heartbreaking story of raising their adopted daughter with ND-PAE, the new DSM 5 diagnostic term for FASD. Brian and Bonnie are founders of FASworld, a nonprofit based out of Toronto, Canada dedicated to raising awareness of FASD. Learn more about their efforts on their website: http://www.fasworld.com/
Conversation included our recent trip to APA’s 168th Annual Meeting in Toronto, where Brian and Bonnie spoke as panelists at our symposium about their experiences raising their daughter and the aims of FASworld. Watch the video below to hear more about the prevention efforts and awareness campaigns focused on ND-PAE.
