Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD): supporting children and young people – 30th August 2017

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are lifelong conditions that have a significant impact on the life of the individual and those around them. Prenatal exposure to alcohol can interfere with normal development to cause growth deficiency and alterations to the internal organs, skeleton and central nervous system. Often, the conditions go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed, for example as autism.

Employment and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Are you familiar with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or FAS in your practice? You may know it is a result of heavy drinking during pregnancy. Some studies even suggest that if a father drinks too much, there are similar consequences. A single alcohol binge in early pregnancy can also have serious consequences even though people tend to dismiss it. It can be very difficult for parents to associate their child’s problems with alcohol consumption, no matter when it occurred, before or during pregnancy.
