This programme is designed to increase recognition and appropriate care of children who have been adversely affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Many clinicians, teachers and most families, have limited clinical expertise in this relatively un-publicised syndrome. The course will therefore be beneficial to professionals and families alike and will help them to develop increased understanding of the issues and the possible responses and interventions.

The course covers the clinical issues involved in alcohol use during pregnancy, together with the clinical symptoms and developmental outcomes. It then looks at the neuropathology of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), including psychopathy and cognitive functioning. Finally, it will examine interventions, including prevention and rehabilitation approaches.
