Kurt is joined by Professor Anita Gibbs; a Professor at the University of Otago, a registered social worker and a regular facilitator of a parent/caregiver support groups for families with children with FASD. They talk about Anita’s experience with FASD which is two-fold and covers both her teaching and research as an academic, and also her lived experience as a parent caring for two boys with FASD. They also chat about FASD in the criminal justice system and ways we may be able to stop people with this invisible disability from becoming entangled in this system.
