Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Partial Fetal Alcohol
“FASD” is not a diagnosis
ARND = pFAS = FAS
The majority of children affected by alcohol exposure have ARND and look totally normal!
Ideally the team evaluates the child over several days, comes to a conclusion together about the diagnosis and gives the information and recommendations to the family.
There is no multidisciplinary diagnostic clinic in Quebec!
