It also features a true-to-life drama about Susan, a young woman who finds out she is pregnant. The Facilitator’s Toolkit contains all of the tools needed to host a one or two hour FASD information session for youth, including facilitator instructions, presentation and summary slides, presentation notes, an agenda, and a workshop evaluation form. An outline for a train-the-trainer workshop is also included.

Shane Burcaw was born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy, which hinders his muscles? growth. As a result, his body hasn?t grown bigger and stronger as he?s gotten older―it?s gotten smaller and weaker instead. This hasn?t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys (like eating pizza and playing sports and video games) with the people he loves, but it does mean that he routinely relies on his friends and family for help with everything from brushing his teeth to rolling over in bed.
