What is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder ?
FASD is a diagnostic term for severe neurodevelopmental impairments (you may see these as difficulties with physical activities, language, memory, learning and behaviour) that result from brain damage caused by alcohol exposure before birth.
It is important to get an early diagnosis so that early interventions and support can be provided. With the right support and early interventions, good outcomes across a range of life goals are more likely to be achieved. A circle of collaboration between health professionals, the family, school and service providers ensures the best opportunities for people with FASD.
