FASD: The Basics

FASD: The Basics is an educational presentation created to provide the latest and most accurate information on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). It covers the history of FASD discovery, examines cause and effects of FASD, and discusses the methods and resources for diagnosis, treatment and –most importantly– the prevention of FASD.

This presentation was created to provide “the basic” information to viewers and audiences with little or no knowledge of this subject. Consequently, presenters and viewers may have additional questions. Further information is available through the FASD Center’s Information Resource Center at 1-866-STOPFAS (786-7327) or fasdcenter1@ngc.com. In addition, users may request training from the FASD Center for Excellence by contacting the Information Resource Center or completing the online form.
