Service Providers

Individuals living with FASD and their families encounter service delivery and support organisations across all sectors of human services and this is reflected in training content and delivery style. In our experience, it is more often the case that education and training sessions are delivered to mixed groups as communities become aware that NOFASD Australia is offering training workshops in respective communities.

Course Information

THE FASD Diagnostic Clinic sits within the Gold Coast Child Development Service and has been operating since 2014 diagnosing children from all over Australia, offering regular training courses for clinicians as well as community based education and is actively involved in FASD research.


The course focuses on multidisciplinary evidence based diagnosis using the 4-Digit Code process harmonised with the Canadian Guideline (V2).


The course is suitable for paediatricians, child psychologists, speech pathologists, child psychiatrists and other paediatric allied health professionals involved in the diagnosis of FASD.


FASD diagnosis requires a functional multidisciplinary approach in order to achieve the diagnosis. The team can be real ie a child development or mental health service, or virtual ie cross referrals.


Course delivery is multimodal using lectures, case based studies, video examples, scenarios and discussion groups.
