Australian Guide to the Diagnosis of FASD

Sep 9, 2016

The "Australian Guide to the Diagnosis of FASD" is has been recently developed to assist health practitioners in the diagnosis of FASD and to make sure once a diagnosis is made, people get the support required to manage the condition. The diagnostic tool differentiates between FASD with three sentinel facial features (which is similar to the previous diagnostic category of "Fetal Alcohol Syndrome") and FASD with less than three sentinel facial features (which encompasses the previous diagnostic categories of "Partial Fetal Alcohol Syndrome" and "Neurodevelopmental Disorder-Alcohol Exposed').  The website includes e-learning modules to assist in upskilling workers in identifying and responding to FASD.

You can download the Guide here and also access the Diagnostic Instrument E-Learning modules.
