Screen Shot 2020-02-05 at 3.39.53 PM

This guide is intended for caregivers (birth parents, kinship caregivers, foster parents, or adoptive parents) of children who were prenatally exposed to alcohol, and who are soon-to-be assessed for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), or have recently been diagnosed with FASD.

If you or a health care professional believe that your child may have FASD due to atypical behaviour and development or confirmed alcohol exposure during pregnancy, and your child has begun their journey towards a diagnosis or has recently received a diagnosis, it is important to know what to expect moving forward.

This guide will inform you of potential signs and symptoms of FASD, how to seek out a diagnosis, what the diagnostic process looks like and what it will tell you, who is involved in the diagnostic process, and what to do after a diagnosis.
