Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term used to describe different congenital malformations and mental disabilities which are caused by maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy. FASD can often be difficult to diagnose in children but these children can have problems which affect them the rest of their lives.

CIHLMU is supporting the efforts of the FASD project in Munich to spread information and give support to mothers dealing with these problems.

For more information on FASD, please see the project pocketguides below.
