The Adults with FASD Leadership Committee for the conference recognizes how important it is to give time and attention to the experiences and stories of teens and adults with FASD, especially to those who are not able to attend the conference. This year, they have added new ways for everyone to share their opinions, experiences, talents and abilities.

Call for Poster Submissions: “This Is Me”
“This Is Me” is a poster format presentation that will showcase the work of teens and adults who have FASD. We invite individuals with FASD to share photos, poetry, artwork, written personal stories, crafts, opinion pieces (what you think about something that is important to you or to others), ideas for change, and any other topic or idea that can be displayed on a poster. These posters will be exhibited at the conference and everyone attending will be able to see them.
