What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the term used to describe the lifelong physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that can result from fetal alcohol exposure. FASD is a condition that is an outcome of parents either not being aware of the dangers of alcohol use when pregnant or planning a pregnancy, or not being supported to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.

I see this all the time. Children in the care system with poor memory and poor verbal skills who were taken into care because of family AOD issues are usually diagnosed with autism or ODD and medicated. Nobody considers FASD https://twitter.com/jobuckard/status/1232293570226225153
