Nationwide studies funded to address Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder

Date posted: 21 June 2011

Seven nationwide studies are being funded to address Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) in Australia. The Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Foundation is funding studies to better diagnose and treat those affected by the disorder; which it refers to as 'Australia's hidden disability'. Additionally, the Westmead Children's Hospital in New South Wales is developing the first FASD screening and diagnostic service, and in Western Australia the Telethon Institute for Child Health research is studying how young people with the disorder are treated in state care.
