Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are lifelong physical, developmental, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities caused by prenatal alcohol exposure.  According to the CDC, FASD impacts as many as 1 in 20 in the US – 2.5x more than autism.  Of the over 80,800 babies born annually in Indiana, almost 4,000 are estimated to have a FASD.  Check out the helpful links below for more information and resources.
