Most people with FASD have no visible signs of prenatal alcohol exposure. Their problems may be wrongly blamed on poor parenting or other disorders. 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.
Your child may be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); yet the root cause may be prenatal alcohol exposure.
Designed for Education Professionals, Social Service Providers, Parents, Guardians, anyone involved with a child with an FASD; Double ARC offers workshops to help children with brain damage and those caring for them.

In addition to FASD Diagnosis, we offer:
