Developmental Disorders

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder



This Video Learning Activity (VLA) will provide an overview of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, firstly looking at prevention. If we know what FASD is and what to look for, we can better screen for it to prevent it. As there is a new diagnosis process in Australia, the characteristics associated with FASD diagnosis will be discussed. Finally, intervention principles will be addressed, along with practical tips that you can apply to decrease the risk of a FASD birth, or to support those who have lived experience of FASD and/or their significant others.

Topics include:

  • What is FASD?
  • Screening and diagnosis
  • Interventions and support

Target audience:

This VLA is designed for health professionals who care for women of childbearing age who may be at risk of drinking during pregnancy. This VLA will also be of interest to all health professionals who may care for children and/or adults who have a diagnosis of FASD.
