Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Clinic

What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term that describes a variety of developmental disorders that result from prenatal alcohol exposure. These disorders include: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), Partial Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (pFAS), Alcohol-related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND), or Alcohol-related Birth Defects (ARBD).

Children who are prenatally exposed to alcohol can exhibit a variety of physical features, health conditions, and learning and behavioral differences. A multidisiplinary evaluation will clarify the diagnosis.

Clinical Services

We provide multidisciplinary evaluations for children who are prenatally exposed to alcohol to determine a diagnosis of FAS or other disorders related to prenatal alcohol exposure. These evaluations include a brief physical exam, interview with caregivers, and a screening of the child’s cognitive skills. Our evaluation team includes a pediatrician, neuropsychologist, and a psychologist.

Our follow-up services include comprehensive neuropsychological testing and educational consultation for school-aged children and adolescents. A neuropsychological evaluation will provide a description of a child’s individual learning and behavioral profile along with recommendations for behavioral interventions and academic teaching strategies to meet a child’s unique learning needs. We are able to attend IEP meetings and consult directly with school personnel.

Referrals

Anyone can make a referral for a diagnostic evaluation by calling our clinic. We will conduct a brief intake interview over the phone with the child’s primary caregiver and schedule an appointment.
