FASD ONE is comprised of working groups with focuses on prevention, diagnosis, intervention & support, justice, education and communication aimed at strengthening individual, agency, community and provincial effectiveness related to FASD. Our group believes Ontario has the capacity to meet many of the needs of those living with FASD and is advancing a framework that focuses on protective and risk factors so the existing system of care has information that will allow it to deliver effective programs.
