Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term used to describe impacts on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol.
Individuals with FASD will experience some degree of challenges in their daily living, and may need support with motor skills, physical health, learning, memory, attention, communication, emotional regulation, and social skills to reach their full potential. While individuals may share common features, each individual with FASD is unique and has areas of both strengths and challenges.
FASD Coordinators provide support for families and individuals who have suspected or diagnosed FASD. We support families with children and youth up until the age of 18 or 21 if they are enrolled in a school program. Families must reside in Dufferin, Wellington or Guelph region to be eligible for service. Please click on the link below for further information.
