Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Presentation:
Intro To FASD
About 25% of children in the US foster care system have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). FASD is a developmental disability resulting from drinking during pregnancy. It generally includes physical, mental, behavioral and/or learning difficulties. Rather than being properly diagnosed and treated, nearly all children with FASD are undiagnosed/misdiagnosed. They are often inappropriately treated for mental or behavior problems. Sadly, about 35% of adults with FASD have served time in jail or prison.
With proper diagnosis and appropriate supports, those with FASD can thrive and succeed. Come learn more about FASD, its diagnosis, treatments and current research.
