Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD):

(Listen in RealAudio…)

FASD is a term that is used to describe a group of birth defects that can occur when a woman drinks alcohol or abuses other substances while pregnant, which causes brain damage to a child that lasts a lifetime. Still, people with FASD can be successful in life. The FASD Center for Excellence facilitates the development of comprehensive systems of care that includes prevention, identification and treatment. What is FASD and why does it often go unrecognized, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed as mental illness? We know what causes FASD, but how does a person live with its effects? Guests include FASD specialists Candace Shelton and Dan Dubovsky.
