Information is power. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition with lifelong cognitive, emotional and behavioural challenges.
FASD is caused by exposure to alcohol in utero. In addition to effects on the brain, FASD is a full-body diagnosis that can include more than 400 known conditions.
FASD affects more people than autism and is sadly most often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Early diagnosis and appropriate support are life-changing for those with FASD.
