R.J. Formanek is an FASD speaker, educator, creator of Flying With Broken Wings, a Facebook Support Group for Individuals with FASD, the caregivers and professionals who support them, as well as the inspiration behind and partner in the Red Shoes Rock international awareness alliance. Oh and did I mention, he is on the Spectrum?
R.J.’s story is an adventure of hope and an inspiration from how he began his journey to end up where he is now- the happiest he has ever been.
Not that I was my own worst enemy – But I definitely wasn’t’ my best friend. I’m not damaged. I was hurt. But I’m healing now.
If you are a caregiver or front line worker wondering what the future holds then tune in to hear:
· Why he considered himself a “garbage bag kid”
· How an “angel” meeting him with empathy helped him heal
· Who the monster under the bed is and why meeting it was important
· When the presumption of competence gives you a reality check
· What being neurodiverse has taught him and what he teaches others about it.
Even if you’ve heard R.J. speak, I still encourage you to tune in as R.J. is a great teller of FASD truths.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/FASDSUCCESS)
