Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is a common, complex neurodevelopmental disorder that often is misunderstood. The data shows that persons with FASD are served in multiple systems: mental health, drug and alcohol, social services, special education, homeless programs, and criminal justice, both juvenile and adult.
Medically, FASD is really a full body disorder. Recent data show subtle neurological problems in FASD, affecting the psychiatric presentation of persons with this disorder.
