Event description

Description


There is a hidden epidemic that affects at least one in fifty people in the UK. It is more common than autism. Approximately seventy-five percent of looked after children are at risk. THIS IS FOETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER.

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder negatively impacts upon learning and development. It is massively under-diagnosed when compared to other intellectual disabilities. While it is neither the exclusive cause, or an inevitable outcome, FASD can have a massive impact on social well-being, mental health, intellectual ability and attainment for those who are affected. Raising awareness of FASD has never been so important with more people having a diagnosis of the condition than any other type of development disability. It is also the most common cause of a non-genetic learning disability in the UK. There has neverbeen a more crucial time and need to discuss this topic and develop the expertise of individuals who are caring for and supporting people who have this condition.
