Neurodevelopmental Assessment and Diagnostic Centre (NDC)
Enviros and the Calgary Fetal Alcohol Network (CFAN) have partnered to establish a new FASD assessment and diagnosis clinic in Calgary. The Enviros Neurodevelopmental Assessment and Diagnostic Centre (NDC) features a multi-disciplinary team that delivers FASD assessment and diagnostic services to our clients across their lifespan.
Enviros’s multidisciplinary team uses The Canadian Guideline for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: a guideline for diagnosis across the lifespan, 2016) as the decision-making tool to diagnose FASD. Learn more here.
Funded by: FASD Initiative through the Calgary Fetal Alcohol Network (CFAN)
What is FASD?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term used to describe impacts on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol. FASD is a lifelong disability. Individuals with FASD will experience some degree of challenges in their daily living, and need support with motor skills, physical health, learning, memory, attention, communication, emotional regulation, and social skills to reach their full potential. Each individual with FASD is unique and has areas of both strengths and challenges.
