Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Ireland
The FASD Trust was started in January 2007 in response to the growing number of requests for information being received by the adoptive parents of a child diagnosed as having FASD (Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders).
Living with and loving a child who carries trauma pain through their daily life is a humbling and exhausting experience.
They are brave warriors whose strength and ability to keep going, even when the world feels dangerous and frightening is incredible to be part of. It also means day to day life is demanding, unusual, chaotic, scary, rewarding and at times bizarrely funny.
We support and facilitate child raising rooted in connection and empathy
The mission of Echo is to educate parents and service professionals about trauma and resilience in order to prevent retraumatization, resolve individual and community-level trauma, and create the safe, stable, nurturing relationship that break the cycle of generational trauma and allow us to heal.
