Expand Content
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, FASD, refers to the range of conditions affecting a child’s health and development, including fetal alcohol syndrome. These conditions are a result of a mother’s use of alcohol during pregnancy. Exposure to alcohol before birth can affect a child’s physical appearance, behavior, learning abilities and social skills.

Our Approach

We have a long history of diagnosing and treating children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). Our FASD program was created in 1978 and today brings together pediatricians, neuropsychologists and occupational therapists to help make recommendations to teachers, social workers and others to provide you and your child with comprehensive, coordinated care. FASD has no cure, but children with FASD can function well when given the right support system. Biomedical research through the University of Minnesota Medical School, Department of Pediatrics and Department of Psychiatry enables us to advance the art and science of clinical medicine, making research developments related to FASD available to you through our clinic.
