Screening and Intervention Programs

Screening and Intervention Programs

Through 2013, the FASD Center for Excellence included funding for screening and intervention programs through a subcontract mechanism. In 2008, the FASD Center funded 23 subcontracts to conduct programs and collect process and outcome data between February 1, 2008 and May 31, 2012. In 2013, the FASD Center funded an additional 20 programs, bringing the cumulative number of funded screening and intervention programs to 43. The programs were funded to achieve one of three goals:

  • FASD Prevention: Decrease the incidence of FASD by eliminating alcohol consumption by pregnant and postpartum women and reducing the risk of alcohol exposed pregnancies among women of child-bearing age.
  • FASD Screening, Diagnosis, and Intervention: Ensure proper identification of children or youth with an FASD and provide appropriate services to improve the functioning and quality of the lives of their families.
  • Screening and Modifications to Treatment: Practice-based evidence for identifying women with a possible FASD in residential treatment programs and modifying treatment approaches to improve outcomes.
