The Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder toolkit for GPs


Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term for a range of effects that can occur to an individual who was exposed to alcohol before they were born.

The toolkit has been designed primarily for general practitioners, but it also contains advice for pregnant women, families and carers of children and adults affected by FASD.

The information and videos in this toolkit helps increase understanding of FASD, the effects of alcohol on the foetus, the process of diagnosis for FASD as well as support and strategies for a person caring for a child/adult with FASD.

There is no cure for FASD, but education can help prevent more children from being born with lifelong alcohol related brain damage and disabilities.
