Please note: while TypePad is generally a blogging site, we are using it to provide a "search by category" list of support and resources for those affected by FASD. The blogging functionality also gives you the opportunity to give comments and feedback for specific listings. And using TypePad provides us with a friendly interface for adding new listings -- if you know of any FASD supports or resources which we've missed, please let us know!
