International Scope For Supporting Adults With FASD

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) affects 2-4% of the UK population, but care provisions remain limited, especially for adults with FASD. This project assisted the National Organisation for FASD by researching policies, practices, and guidelines to support adults with FASD in the USA, Australia, and Canada. We conducted literature reviews to identify which organizations were promoting best practices in support of adults with FASD. We supplemented our background research by interviewing representatives from several of these organizations. We identified legislation and resources on best practices in housing, education, diagnosis, mentorship, and criminal justice. We recommend the National Organisation for FASD advocate for many of these practices to improve support for adults with FASD in the UK.
