Yes, it’s possible to screen for FASD, experts say – Nunatsiaq News

It’s really sad to see the reluctance of people to do screening”

9 May, 2019

An unknown number of Nunavut residents with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, or FASD, are being denied the help they need, because territorial agencies do little screening or diagnosis and because no one has ever tried to pull together information that already exists on the disability’s prevalence.

That’s according to a variety of experts who spoke to Nunatsiaq News.

“Screening and diagnosis need to be done, whether you’re a youth in school or you’re an adult. People who have FASD have serious support needs,” said Helen Roos, the president and lead instructor of the Ilinniapaa Skills Development Centre in Iqaluit.
