Early intervention is always better than crisis management - but it is never too late to do the right thing.

The quickest way to change your child’s behaviour is to first change your own.

FASD – 4 Bad Things That Can Happen

Four bad things can happen to a developing baby exposed to alcohol in utero:

– functional deficits

– growth deficiency

– malformation

– death

Full blown FASD is only the “tip of the iceberg”. The largest  part of the iceberg is comprised of those individuals who appear “normal” but are unable to meet their potential. In previous years these individuals may have been diagnosed as having FAE (Fetal Alcohol Effect). FAE is a term that is rarely used these days but the condition causes untold hardships by the individual directly affected, his family, the school system,  the medical community, social welfare and the justice system. The economic costs and emotional cost associated with all degrees of FASD are staggering.
