Researchers have shown that early diagnosis can improve outcomes for people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Early diagnosis can lead to earlier support and interventions, which can reduce the risk of health challenges and common secondary outcomes in the future. Early diagnosis can also help reduce stigma, improve understanding and self-awareness, and potentially identify substance use challenges in parents.
But what does FASD diagnosis look like in Canada? Coleen Burns and Dr. Hasmukhlal tell us in this recording of a webinar from February 18, 2022.
This video is part of our CanFASD webinar series, bringing evidence-based research on FASD to Canadians from the comfort of their own home.
