 “FASD results when prenatal alcohol exposure affects the developing brain and body. FASD is a spectrum. Each person with FASD is affected differently. While more than 400 conditions can co-occur, FASD is at its core a lifelong neurodevelopmental condition. All people with FASD have many strengths. Early diagnosis and appropriate support are essential, especially for executive functioning.” (Source: FASD: Preferred UK Language Guide, Seashell Trust/National FASD, 2020)

FASD-informed practitioners can make the world of difference in the lives of people with FASD and their families. With the new NICE Quality Standard on FASD, an increased understanding about FASD a priority for professionals across education.
