Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders:

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is a range of effects that can occur when a developing baby is prenatally exposed to alcohol.  FASD is the leading cause of developmental disabilities in the US.  FASD can include physical disabilities, as well as difficulties with behavior and learning.  These conditions are lifelong and irreversible, and there is no cure.  The Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) offers many supports and resources to families impacted by an FASD.
