It is highly likely that a high percentage of children and adults with FASD, either diagnosed or un-diagnosed will be clients of Community Service providers who work with women or young people with disability, or are homeless, unemployed, have substance use problems and/or who have experienced violence, maltreatment, or trauma. In order to provide appropriate support and services to these clients service providers must be FASD-informed. This means recognizing that to improve outcomes and programme success, it is the system, programme, and/or service providers who need to make modifications rather than the person with FASD.
