This program provides information and education to families with children with a possible or confirmed diagnosis of prenatal alcohol or drug exposure, or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).

What happens in this program?

Families can receive support via the following streams:

  1. Consultative services: CASA’s FASD educator can provide information and resources, and can assist in navigating FASD services available in the community.
