From Statistic to Success: My interview with Matt Sinclair

Meet Matt. Matt is an FASD worker in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – he is also living
on the spectrum of FASD. In this Candid Convo, Matt talks about his rollercoaster past and
how he went from being on the streets, to being married and to now helping
other families navigate the choppy waters that is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

The goal of these interviews and videos is to show you that
no matter how hopeless it can seem or how lost our loved ones may appear,
that things really can turn around.

I see and hear about these successes over and over again…
When we find the right supports and surround our loved ones with
the right people, there is no reason they not only succeed,
but they make their own contribution.

This is awesome. Enjoy.

  1. This is quite encouraging! I am the adoptive parent who has children on the FAS spectrum. Advocating for them lead me to incorporating a NFP in the State of Indiana (Central Indiana NOFAS) where I am forging the work of awareness….hoping bring understanding and bridge the gap to inclusion. I needed this to see this clip today! I wish my soon to be 14 could interact with individuals who have navigated through the teen years and have redefined success to fit their lives.

    • Susan, that’s great news. It’s so true about bridging the gap for more inclusion
      not exclusion, which is most people’s current model of practice. Thanks for the comment
      and good luck with your work.
