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