Provide your feedback: New guidelines for the assessment and diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

A draft version of the Australian Guidelines for Assessment and Diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) or Neurodevelopmental Disorder Associated with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (ND/PAE) is now ready for public consultation.

These new guidelines aim to support practitioners in undertaking assessments across the lifespan, when one possible outcome may be a diagnosis of FASD/ND-PAE.

The primary target users of these guidelines are Australian practitioners undertaking assessments of infants, children, adolescents, and adults, that may result in an FASD/ND-PAE diagnosis. 

The Australian FASD/ND-PAE Guidelines Development Group are seeking feedback to improve the feasibility and acceptability of the recommendations and improve wording and presentation of the guidelines. Your unique perspective is needed to ensure that the new guidelines accurately reflect the occupational therapy perspective.

You can access the draft version of the Australian Guidelines for Assessment and Diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) or Neurodevelopmental Disorder Associated with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (ND/PAE) via the survey

Public consultation is now open and closes: 21 April 2024.
