Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) affect individuals and families across social work practice settings and systems of care — but they can be prevented. Learn more about FASD, strategies for preventing alcohol-exposed pregnancies (AEP), and models for FASD-informed care. CDC offers free, online learning modules for busy practitioners who serve women who may be at risk of AEP, or individuals living with an FASD. Continuing education credits available.
