Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Resources

Contact the Florida Department of Health

Families Affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder has a mission to raise awareness about fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) through education, support, and research-based training. The website offers resources, workshops, and webinars for family members, caregivers, and professionals living with, caring for, and working with individuals with FASD.

FASD United supports individuals and families living with FASD through referrals, advocacy, training, information dissemination, and a wide range of diverse initiatives and resources. FASD United provides a state-by-state resource directory. The directory includes resources on alcohol and addiction treatment, tools for parents of children who have been diagnosed with FASD, connection to support groups, research on FASD, and contact information to local FASD United affiliates. 

The Florida Center for Early Childhood has a mission to help build and foster strong families and expand the potential of young children. The Florida Center has been a leading provider of therapeutic services, early education, and healthy development for children in southwest Florida. Florida's only FASD clinic is located at the center's Sarasota campus, offering evaluations for individuals of all ages who may have had prenatal exposure to alcohol. 

The Florida Department of Health published the FASD Florida Resource Guide, which provides an overview of what FASD is, the effects of FASD on fetal development, diagnostic information, and information on prevention for individuals, families, and providers. The guide contains website and newsletter resources, references, and contact information for support groups. 

The University of Florida website provides information on locations that offer services to individuals diagnosed with FASD as well as contact information for FASD specialists in northern Florida. These resources may be helpful to individuals, families, and providers seeking medical care specifically for FASD.
