Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome


Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders- NOFASD -open

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an inclusive and generic term used to describe a continuum of adverse fetal outcomes. It is widely recognized as the most common preventable cause of birth defects and brain damage in children. It is claimed that prevalence rates are largely unknown and probably under ascertained.

FASD is not a clinical diagnosis in itself but represents a range of diagnoses that fall within the spectrum - Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, partial Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

Children affected by alcohol exposure before birth may be found amongst those diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Austism Spectrum Disorder or Asperger Disorder.
