FASD Fact 15: Developmental Disability Supports prevent poor outcomes for people with FASDs.

Text:

One factor that leads to more positive outcomes for people with FASDs is qualification for developmental disability supports. We’ve known this for 20+ years (Streissguth et al, 1996)

As of 2018, not a single state in the US uses a diagnosis on the FASD spectrum as a qualifier for developmental disability supports. In many states this is not the case for certain other developmental disabilities, like autism.
