A diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder can increase a child’s ability to access support, services and funding. It can also maximize skill potential by identifying and reducing obstacles and risks. Our multidisciplinary Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Diagnostic Services serve children ages 6-18.
Our team provides clients with the necessary information to understand the range of effects of prenatal alcohol exposure, including the physical, intellectual and neurobehavioural effects. We confirm the diagnosis, provide assessment reports, offer recommendations and guide support plans. Upon diagnosis, we can also provide support to access services, information and education regarding FASD.
To be eligible for this service, clients must be:
- Be between the ages of six (6) and 18 years old
- Have clear confirmation of prenatal alcohol exposure
- Pay the fee for service, if required
