FNQ ADHD Angela Agius Hi, I’m Angie In 2018, after struggling to reach my “potential” despite repeatedly being described as bright , enthusiastic and intelligent I was diagnosed with ADHD. My son had just been diagnosed and through the process I recognized the parallels in my own life. I was determined to support my son to be the best version of himself and set out to learn everything I could about ADHD. I am a graduate of the Basic Training Program at the ADD Coach Academy [ADDCA] working towards accreditation and enrolled in the Advanced Training program. ADDCA provides training designed specifically for coaching those with ADHD and is one of a few organizations accredited by the ICF and PAAC. I am passionate about helping individuals to achieve their goals through an 'ADHD lens', co-creating strategies, and engineering an environment that works to support the ADHD brain, not struggle against it.

NOFASD Being aware and informed about FASD Alcohol can cause damage to the developing baby at any time during pregnancy, often before a pregnancy has been confirmed. The level of harm is dependent on a wide range of factors, making it impossible to predict the outcome of alcohol exposure to any individual pregnancy. Factors include the amount and frequency of the mother’s alcohol use, age, health (nutrition, tobacco and other substance use, mental health) and environmental factors such as stress. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term used to describe the impacts on the brain and body of people prenatally exposed to alcohol. FASD is a lifelong disability. Individuals with FASD will experience some degree of challenges in their daily living and may need support to develop motor skills and strengthen their learning, memory, attention and communication skills. Their physical health requires assessment and monitoring, and they may struggle with emotional regulation and appropriate social skills. However, early intervention and understanding will assist people living with FASD to reach their full potential. Each person with FASD is unique and has areas of both strengths and challenges. The importance of the role of Out-of-home care sector workers People involved in...
