DoubleARC Center for FASD Diagnostic Team
Our multi-disciplinary team includes:
- speech-language pathologists,
- occupational therapists,
- FASD specialist
- education and behavioral specialists
- social worker
- Registered nurse
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 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.
