Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
Definition: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a descriptive term (not a diagnostic term) used to describe a group of conditions or a range of effects caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. These effects can include physical issues and difficulties with behavior and learning. Often, a person with an FASD has a combination of these conditions. These conditions can affect each person in different ways, and can range from mild to severe. The most well-known diagnosis within this umbrella category is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) – which only represents a portion of persons with effects of prenatal alcohol exposure.
