FASD The Course > FASD The Course Introduction
Welcome to FASD – The Course, which is free to the public. This course provides an overview of risk
factors for fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), its signs and symptoms, and prevention and treatment
methods. The course includes seven modules that can be studied at your own pace. You can complete one or
more modules based on your needs. This course is designed primarily for health, mental health, and social
services providers, educators, and other professionals who work with children, adolescents, and adults with
an FASD. Parents, caregivers, and family members of individuals with an FASD may also find it helpful.
Did you know that each year about 40,000 babies are born with permanent disabilities due to prenatal
exposure to alcohol? The more you know about the devastating effects of alcohol on these children, the more you
can do to help. We hope you find FASD – The Course useful, and we welcome your
feedback. Thank you for
your interest in FASD.
