Practice Tips

 

  • Request that all children who enter the child welfare system be screened for FASD.
  • Ensure a comprehensive assessment is completed in suspected cases, preferably by a developmental or behavioral pediatrician. 
  • If the assessment reveals a problem, ensure the child’s caregiver has the knowledge and support to meet his needs and the child is receiving early intervention services.  Because FASD affects learning, especially for young children, assessment is critical to identify services to help a child get ready for school.
