Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
FASD refers to a range of conditions caused by exposure to alcohol before birth.
FASD is a permanent and life-long neurodevelopmental disability and often results in cognitive, physical and behavioural issues.
NACCHO acknowledges the community-controlled sector’s leadership in developing strength-based approaches to addressing FASD, and supporting people with FASD and their families and carers. A range of campaign and information resources are being developed to support our Members and their communities.
