Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is an umbrella term describing the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral, and/or learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications. Current research suggests that as many as 1 in 100 individuals may be adversely affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol.
Understanding how to prevent, identify and treat FASD is crucial to individuals, families, and society. The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania, Inc. has been at the forefront of FASD awareness, education, and prevention. We are represented on the Pennsylvania FASD Task Force and offer trainings on FASD to professional agencies as well as community organizations.
