Children with Complex Needs: FASD Program 

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder refers to a group of symptoms observed in children who were exposed to alcohol before birth. These symptoms range in seriousness and degree dependent upon the amount and timing of alcohol consumed throughout pregnancy. FASD is a brain injury that impacts the development of the baby's brain, which has significant implications for growth, learning, intelligence, etc. It is important to note that the damage is permanent.

This program coordinates Multidisciplinary Diagnostic FASD Clinics, for children and youth. Follow up support for families is also offered.
