FASD Makes Me, Me animation has been co-developed with input, advice, feedback, and ideas from young people with FASD, their siblings, and parents/carers from the FASD Hub Scotland community.
Produced by Edinburgh-based studio – HeeHaw, the animation follows Charlie, a young person with FASD. Through the animation, we spend the day with Charlie, a young person with FASD. They show us that they think differently, and how when others do so too, this enables them to be successful, succeed and shine.
The animation has been voiced by Conar – a 13-year-old with FASD, from Scotland. The animation was launched on 9th September 2021, International FASD Awareness Day, as part of FASD Hub Scotland’s FASD Think Differently campaign #FASDthinkDifferently. The #FASDthinkDifferently campaigns key messages for the month. Those with FASD think differently and therefore those who parent and support them also need to think differently. When we all think differently individuals can achieve great things.
