FASD stands for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders,
a form of neurodiversity that arises as a result of prenatal exposure to alcohol.

The research on prenatal alcohol exposure is rapidly changing,
which provides greater opportunities for understanding the strengths and needs of individuals with an FASD.

The FASD Collaborative Project was created in late 2020 from a discussion within the FASD United Affiliate Network. A need was identified to increase effective supports and evidence-based training at a national level related to FASD.

Organizations from around the globe joined forces with the idea that if we each "give a little," we can create more dynamic systems of care. There are over 40 partner organizations participating in our current offerings.
