Diagnosis & Support

Diagnosis of FASD

There is no specific medical test for the FASD conditions. Diagnosis relies on:
  • Recognising the pattern of features
  • Ruling out other possible medical causes
  • Questioning the mother on her alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
Treatment of FASD

There is no cure for FASD. Treatment is available for the child, including special education programs and behaviour modification therapy.
