At NCFASD Informed, we believe that it is crucial that individuals be diagnosed properly and early to create positive outcomes and avoiding adverse consequences.  We firmly believe that this will increase the likelihood of a successful and productive life for those exposed to alcohol in utero.

NCFASD Informed seeks to empower individuals impacted by prenatal exposure to alcohol through raising awareness of FASD among parents, educators, and health professionals, leading to increased evaluation/diagnosis and community support.  This spectrum disorder is not only under diagnosed and misdiagnosed, but also underserved and misserved once it is recognized.

Our programs are presented in physical locations, as well as virtually. Information shared will depend on the request of the sponsor; call to talk about offering training to your colleagues.
