Australian Guide to the diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

(cover of the report, see the reference link below)

A diagnosis of FASD requires evidence of prenatal alcohol exposure and severe impairment in three or more domains of central nervous system structure or function.

A diagnosis of FASD can be divided into one of two sub-categories:

  1. FASD with three sentinel facial features
  2. FASD with less than three sentinel facial features
