Day 45 of 99 Days to FASDay: Prevalence of FASD in Child Welfare (International)


Welcome to Day 45 of 99 days to FASDay! Today we see some statistics of the prevalence of FAS and FASD in children who are in care around the world, although only a few countries were noted in this study:  Canadian Children and Youth in Care: The Cost of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Child & Youth Care Forum, 2014, Volume 43, Number 1, Page 83 Svetlana Popova, Shannon Lange, Larry Burd, Jürgen Rehm .

Feel free to comment below if you have statistics for other countries or have links to additional studies.

Come back tomorrow for Day 46. We will be sharing information for, about and from caregivers.
