Read the full guidelines
20:07 Diagnosis of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is essential to
improve outcomes for affected individuals and families, and to inform pre-pregnancy counselling to prevent future cases. This guideline from the Canada Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Research Network provides evidence-based recommendations for best practices in the diagnosis of this condition.
In this podcast, two of the authors of the guideline explain what to
look for in clinical practice. Dr. Valerie Temple is a clinical
psychologist at Surrey Place Centre in Toronto, and Dr. Christine Loock is a developmental pediatrician at Children’s and Women’s Health Centre of British Columbia, with an academic appointment at UBC.
