Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders: supporting children and young people

Children in Scotland

Exposure to alcohol prenatally can interfere with a child’s development, and cause growth deficiency and alterations to the internal organs, skeleton and central nervous systems. Often the conditions may go undiagnosed, or be misdiagnosed, for example as autism. This workshop will illustrate the wide range of conditions encompassed by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and explore practical ways of supporting children who are affected.
