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.
