Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term that describes the range of effects that can occur in an individual who was prenatally exposed to alcohol. These effects can include lifelong physical, mental, behavioural difficulties, and learning disabilities.
The Labrador-Grenfell Health FASD Interdisciplinary Diagnostic Clinic offers consultation, assessments and diagnosis as well as education on the effects of FASD and how to best care for someone with a diagnosis. The team consists of a Pediatrician, Family Physician, Psychologist, two Speech Language Pathologists, an Occupational Therapist and a Clinic Coordinator.
