“We are fortunate to work alongside many gifted artists. Our artists take great pride in showcasing their work, which is endless in its creativity: beadwork, poetry, song lyrics, canvass, sketch, graffiti, gardening, and dance. It is an opportunity to express emotions; exercise time management skills; earn income; take pride in strengths and abilities; enhance areas of socialization and communication; and create community. ” – Emma Rafferty, Program Manager, Spectrum Connections FASD Program
Encouraging and supporting the strengths of individuals with FASD is essential in working alongside them and helping them to realize their own potentials!
