HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [ 5.36 pm ]: I rise because I want to recognise that this Saturday, 9 September, is International FASD Awareness Day. It is held on the ninth day of the ninth month every year. The date was chosen to highlight the importance of the nine months of pregnancy. International FASD Awareness Day was first held in 1999, so awareness of the existence and cause of FASD has increased significantly since that time. For members who do not know what FASD is, it stands for foetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
