Paper: Preventing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term used to describe the wide variety of lifelong developmental effects associated with prenatal alcohol exposure.

This new paper released by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) outlines developments for the prevention of FASD and the diagnosis and support of children and young people living with FASD in Australia.

It describes some of the key policy and practice initiatives since 2016, including the National FASD Strategic Action Plan 2018–2028, and considers further opportunities for responding to the needs of children and families affected by FASD.
