Although the neurodevelopmental disabilities associated with FASD have been well characterized, there is a significant lack of communication between families affected by FASD, service delivery providers and policy makers that along with access and eligibility issues, prevents the implementation of appropriate (and timely) treatment programs.

Goals / Outcomes: This project, led by principal investigator Patrick McGrath of Dalhousie University, will develop an Internet-based FASD-specific parent training program designed to meet the current limitations in access and eligibility for families seeking services and supports, and provide evidence for feasibility and efficacy to support changes in policy by key decision makers.
