Project Summary Statement

The Hennepin County Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Program integrated FASD screening, diagnosis and intervention within Hennepin County’s juvenile probation and children’s mental health system. The target audience is adjudicated delinquent youth ages 12 through 18. The goals and outcome objectives of the program are to reduce recidivism, maintain stability in out-of-home placements, and improve home and school functioning. These goals are consistent with Minnesota statutes requiring that juvenile justice systems not only provide for public safety and reduce juvenile delinquency but also account for the needs of individual youth and their capacity for growth and change.
