What is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is an umbrella term that describes the range of effects that can occur in an individual who was prenatally exposed to alcohol. These effects can include long-term physical, learning and behavioural conditions.
In Canada, research estimates that 9 in every 1,000 babies are born with FASD. In Alberta, this means that there are more than 45,000 Albertans with FASD, and an estimated 450 babies are born with the disorder every year.

Through local agencies in the North West this Network provides FASD supports to families and individuals. Our network also offers a Mobile Diagnostic Clinic providing assessments, referrals and follow-up planning to children, youth and adults.
