A state where all individuals are born free of exposure to alcohol, drugs, and other substances known to harm fetal development.
We believe that…
FASD is the leading known preventable cause of developmental disabilities and birth defects, and a leading known cause of learning disabilities.
FASD annual births are
greater than the new cases of
Down syndrome, cerebral
palsy, cystic ﬁbrosis, spina
biﬁda, and sudden infant
FASD prevention is at least
ten-times more cost effective
than the $1.4 million lifetime
cost to treat one person with
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
FASD can affect anyone regardless of ethnicity, income, or educational level.
FASD is completely preventable.
FASD children and adults can succeed with access to services and appropriate intervention.
FASD birth mothers deserve therapeutic intervention and treatment.
FASD families and caregivers deserve a voice among researchers and policymakers.
