Foetal (Fetal) Alcohol Syndrome Interview


  1. I have just been listening to your blog regarding Foetal Alcohol Syndrome.

    Earlier on in the year I attended a conference entitled ‘Shaping a Future for Children with Alcohol Foetal Spectrum Disorder’. I found this day very informative and a real eye opener. I have worked in the alcohol field now for a number of years in both treatment and prevention services.

    I feel that this country should do more to recognise children that are affected by this condition, especially given the fact that there are mixed messages out there concerning pregnant women and alcohol. I also wonder how many poor children there may be out there living with this disorder and not getting the right help, treatment and support they need along with there families.

    The advice our service gives to the members of our community/general public we work with, is that if you are planning on being pregnant or that you are pregnant then to completely abstain from alcohol. As your speaker said and as I learnt at the seminar is that mothers do not have to be alcohol dependant or drink heavily every day to inflict this condition onto their children.

    I would be very interested in any training you have to offer on this subject or any other training concerning alcohol.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kindest Regards

  2. NCC Home Learning have two fantastic courses;
    I have just recently completed both these courses and found them both extremly valuable.
    I work for an addictions organisation running groups for clients who struggle with alcohol addiction, both men and women alike are very kean to learn more about FAS, most of whom had never heard of the syndrome before, hope this helps.
