What is this research about?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the leading cause of a developmental disability (DD) that could be prevented. The quality of life of people with FASD is improved when they begin interventions at an early age. It is not yet possible to screen a fetus for FASD before birth.
