Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is one of the most prevalent causes of developmental disability, impacting up to 2-5% of children in the United States. Yet, evidence-based treatments for individuals with FASD are notably limited, and individuals with this diagnosis have been very underrepresented in the empirical behavior analytic…

Gill, Kamaldeep; Thompson-Hodgetts, Sandra – Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, 2018
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is one of the leading causes of intellectual disabilities. Self-regulation in FASD is poorly defined and interpreted in varying ways, making informed clinical decision making difficult. The objective is to operationally define self-regulation in the FASD population using the Walker and Avant (2005)…

Millar, Julie A.; Thompson, Janet; Schwab, Dorothy; Hanlon-Dearman, Ana; Goodman, Deborah; Koren, Gal; Masotti, Paul – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2017
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is a prevalent neurodevelopmental disability with significant implications for learning and behaviour. International research suggests that the prevalence of FASD in school-aged children is 2.3-6.3%. In this paper, we address the questions: (1) what is FASD; (2) what is the prevalence of FASD in schools; (3)…
