Raising awareness of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder

Posted on: Thu 12 Sep 2019

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, or FASD, describes the physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that can result from prenatal exposure to alcohol.

Each year, September 9th is International FASD Awareness Day. Now in its 20th year, the day aims to raise awareness of the condition and ensure pathways to treatment are available.

Louise Gray, CEO of NOFASD Australia speaks to Small Change‘s Bonnie Parker about the impact it can have on individuals and families, as well as the importance of language use around the condition.
