Competency 2: Identification of FASD and Diagnosis of FAS

FAS Diagnostic Criteria

An FAS diagnosis has four components:

  • Facial anomalies
  • Growth deficiencies
  • Central nervous system defects
  • Maternal alcohol use during pregnancy

If the other three criteria are met, a diagnosis of FAS can be made without confirming maternal alcohol use.
