Despite what appears to be a surprisingly high prevalence, and their status as a global public health problem, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) are under-recognized and often missed or misdiagnosed. Latest FASD prevalence estimates range from 2 to 5% of the younger elementary school population in active case ascertainment studies. Information on diagnosis and what has come to be called “FASD-informed care” (including innovative tailored treatments) can be useful in the practice of child psychiatry, psychology and other health disciplines. This is especially true because there are high rates of mental health problems in the clinical population of those meeting criteria for a condition on the fetal alcohol spectrum.
