Emerging Minds response: Senate Inquiry into Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, November 2019
Emerging Minds, Australia, November, 2019
The range of difficulties which may be experienced by a child or parent with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) mean the impact of the disorder is intrinsically linked with the mental health and wellbeing of children in families affected by FASD. These physical, emotional and cognitive difficulties can make it harder for a child to successfully negotiate their learning and social environments, negatively impacting their development. Greater understanding, along with quality support for children in families affected by FASD can make it easier for children to experience positive and inclusive interactions within their broader social networks.
