• diagnostic, consultation, and advocacy services for families and caregivers of children up to 18 years of age who have, or are suspected of having, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
• diagnostic and assessment services for adults who are suspected of having FASD.
The FASD Clinic consists of a team of professionals, i.e. Doctors, therapists, a clinic coordinator, etc. The team completes an assessment to determine if prenatal alcohol exposure has impacted the individual’s development and current functioning. This assessment determines if a diagnosis within the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum is appropriate, and offers strategies and interventions to support the individual.
Please contact the FASD Programs Manager regarding the clinic screening and process.
• The guardian will need to request a FASD screening referral to the clinic’s lead paediatrician from their family physician.
• If the clinic’s lead paediatrician determines an assessment is appropriate, the referral will proceed to clinic assessment.
• If you would like an assessment, please contact the main office and speak with the FASD Programs Manager regarding eligibility.
If you provide care to a child/youth under 18 years with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of FASD, the FASS program is also available for consultation services. Please call the FASD Programs Manager.
