Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term that describes a range of physical and developmental disabilities caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol.
An estimated 48 000 people in Alberta are living with FASD.
The Prairie Central FASD Association is part of the Government of Alberta’s FASD 10-Year Strategic Plan. The FASD 10-Year Strategic Plan provides an overview of the scope and impact of FASD on individuals and families in Alberta. It identifies a vision, mission statement, guiding principles and a broad framework for the coordination, planning and delivery of FASD services across Alberta in the areas of:
- Awareness and Prevention
- Assessment and Diagnosis
- Supports for Individuals and Caregivers
- Awareness and Education
We are one of 12 ‘Networks’ across the province of Alberta who work in these areas.
The 12 FASD Service Networks are a key initiative of the FASD 10-Year strategic plan to provide:
- community based coordinated assessment and diagnosis,
- targeted and indicated prevention, and
- support services for people affected by FASD and their caregivers.
The networks are comprised of community agencies and organizations that provide FASD-related supports and services.
