WELCOME TO FASD SCOTLAND
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) - a range of detrimental effects to the fetus and baby’s development when alcohol is consumed during pregnancy. The detrimental effects of FASD, for the child and their family, are life-long. As many pregnancies are unplanned, women might not be aware they are pregnant particularly in the first few months. Women and their partners might not be aware of the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy which can impact their child’s development, physical and mental health, learning and behaviour.
FASD Scotland offers:
- Information and awareness about the lifelong risks of prenatal exposure to alcohol.
- Information, support and advocacy to families caring for a child affected by FASD.
- Strategies for managing FASD.
- Advice and training to reduce FASD Secondary Disabilities.
- Training for professionals involved with individuals affected by FASD
- Partnership with other agencies to prevent FASD and Secondary Disabilities
