My step-daughter is now 11.5 years old and we finally this past year got the diagnoses of slight FAS. This has presented itself as speech impediment, trouble with math, attitude problem, and trouble using the bathroom for pooping, The trouble has become that she now hides the soiled underwear for weeks and the attitude is getting worse. It is beginning to cause a huge rift between her mother and I and the strain is very painful. Both physically and emotionally. We live just outside of the Toronto area in Ontario Canada and I am having trouble finding any support beyond that of family. Looking on-line I have been unable to find any kind of support groups, other than links to sites that so nothing but describe the affliction. Not sure if it's just that I'm not searching properly, or if I'm just so upset about this that I'm past the point of thinking straight. If anyone can help with links to Canadian sites, or even know of anything I can do, I would appreciate it.
