Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term describing birth defects in children whose mothers drank alcohol when they were pregnant. Prenatal exposure to alcohol is a leading cause of preventable birth defects and along with Spina Bifida and Down Syndrome it is one of the top three known causes of developmental delay in children. It is a life-long condition. A child with FASD becomes an adult with FASD. There is no cure for this syndrome; the damage is irreversible. This training will provide an overview of the disorder and will also provide information on identifying and referring children who are affected by FASD.
