Persons affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) need the support of both family and professionals in order to live successfully. Double ARC provides diagnosis, education and support for parents whose child is struggling with the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure.
Often adoptive parents are unaware their child may have been prenatally exposed to alcohol but they know that their child struggles with problem solving skills, memory problems, impulsivity, poor judgement and may lack social skills. Often children are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) yet the root cause may be alcohol exposure. Double ARC is always available to talk about your child’s issues so that we can determine whether we can help you and your child.
As leading strategists for providing the best possible education for children, Double ARC provides diagnosis, consultation and staff development opportunities so that educators, health care providers, and professionals in the social service arenas are equipped to support children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
Double ARC FASD Diagnostic Team
Our multi-disciplinary team includes pediatricians, neuropsychologist, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, education and behavioral specialists and a team manager. These professionals come together to assess, diagnose and develop a service plan for each child.
The diagnostic assessment includes:
- Collection and analysis of medical, psychological, school and social service records
- 4-hour assessment process by multi-disciplinary team
- Medical Summary report
- School consultation
Information provided by the diagnostic assessment guides the development of appropriate support and interventions for the child in home, school, social service, and medical settings. Case management services following the diagnosis include assistance in completing the recommendations as well as advocacy for the child in these same settings.

Double ARC, serves children and their families who are affected by prenatal alcohol exposure to reach their full potential through education, intervention and advocacy. Double ARC is sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame.
In 2006 Double ARC became the Ohio affiliate of NOFAS, the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. This positions Double ARC as part of the national efforts to bring awareness about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy to the national level and to seek services and funding that will benefit those affected and their families. This website is made possible through a grant from NOFAS.
