The Supporting Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Screening and Intervention program helps reduce alcohol use during pregnancy and improves outcomes for children with FASD nationwide, especially in communities where there’s a high rate of binge drinking during pregnancy. The program focuses on educating Primary Care Providers (PCPs) and increasing the use of screening, intervention, and referral processes for high-risk pregnancies. The program’s goals include increasing PCPs’ knowledge of the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy as well as promoting recommended screenings, interventions, and referral approaches. In addition, PCPs who provide health care to children and adolescents will develop skills to identify and manage FASD, with a particular emphasis on fostering effective communication with families. Through recruitment, education, and technical assistance, the program aims to make lasting positive changes. Engaging a minimum of 80 practices over 5 years, the Supporting FASD Screening and Intervention program strives for widespread impact, particularly in communities that have high rates of binge drinking during pregnancy, including rural areas and medically underserved communities.
