FAS listserves

Someone sent me a list of listserves for FASD.  Thought I'd share them as I know some of you out there parent kids w/ FASD.  No one group is better than another.  Usually w/ these groups, people find their "fit."  I have a few groups I'm members of.  Some w/ RAD are VERY private just based on the nature of the disorder and some not understanding.  But, most groups or forums I participate in are public and very supportive of parents of children w/ issues.  We all are in the same boat and I think that is what helps.  We understand each other.  Sometimes, venting helps.  Sometimes getting resources helps.  Sometimes knowing you're not alone, helps.  Whatever you are seeking, you can usually find a forum or listserve that will help you better understand your child's needs.  So, here's the list copied and pasted for FASD listserves:
