Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a range of characteristics displayed by children who have been exposed to alcohol in-utero. Children may display a range of physical, cognitive, social or emotional disabilities which last a lifetime. Caring for children with FASD is challenging but awareness, education, early intervention and support will encourage the child’s early learning, self-esteem and readiness for life-long learning.
