FASD Network UK (Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder)
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is a term used to describe impacts on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol during pregnancy. FASD is a lifelong disability. Individuals with FASD have their own unique areas of difficulties and may experience challenges in their daily living and need support with motor skills, physical health, learning, memory, attention, emotional regulation, and social skills. They also have a unique set of strengths and many are showing talents, that when nurtured and supported, demonstrates their unlimited potential in those areas. We are the only FASD regional organisation for the North East and Yorkshire and work strategically across the local authority areas. We are here to support families and practitioners in terms of information and training to understand FASD so that they can support children and families affected by FASD.
