WHAT IS FASD?​

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is an umbrella term used to describe a group of conditions that affect a person due to prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE).

It is probably the most common preventable cause of non-genetic learning disability and such individuals may also be living with a number of complex, lifelong, physical, mental, psychological and emotional difficulties due to the exposure to alcohol as a foetus.
