BACKGROUND Individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) can experience profound impairments and long-term adverse outcomes. This systematic review adopts a life span perspective providing an extensive analysis of the available literature. METHODS Studies were identified from PsycInfo, PubMed, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, CINAHL, ERIC, The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and gray literature. Two reviewers independently screened the title and abstract of each reference… Expand
Effectiveness of evidence-based treatments of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders in children and adolescents: a systematic review protocol
TLDR
A protocol for a systematic review assessing the effectiveness of evidence from randomised controlled trials comparing fetal alcohol spectrum disorders pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions with placebo/dummy interventions or usual standards of care in children and adolescents (<18 years old is provided. Expand
PROTOCOL: Interventions for improving executive functions in children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: Systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
While the core aspects of the condition remain unchanged, the Australian guidelines comprise two diagnostic categories for FASD: (a) FASd with three sentinel facial features or (b) FasD with less than three sent Sentinel facial features. Expand
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder resources for educators working within primary school settings: a scoping review protocol
TLDR
This scoping review aims to identify and evaluate resources for educators that aid in the identification, management, or accommodation of students with FASD. Expand
Experiences of Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and Their Families: A Critical Review.
TLDR
A critical review of existing research revealed that whilst many studies discussed impacts at the body functions and structures level of children with FASD, they often did not consider the activity, participation, and environmental factors also contributing to the daily functioning of this population. Expand
Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder: The development of guidelines to inform policy
TLDR
This study proposes the use of multiple sources for data collection toward developing a guideline to inform policy on FASDs and proposes a proven methodology – The Delphi technique to develop the guideline. Expand
A fetal alcohol spectrum disorder diagnostic service and beyond: Outcomes for families.
TLDR
This paper highlights the implementation of the Australian Guide to the Diagnosis of FASD, and evaluates caregivers' experiences of their child's FAsD assessment process, within a public FasD diagnostic service, using the revised guidelines. Expand
Forty Years of Assessing Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Effects of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure in Infants: What Have We Learned?
TLDR
There is considerable evidence to support the value of early-life assessments of infant NDB when PAE is known or suspected, and more studies focusing on infant self-regulation are needed to determine the utility of early evaluation of this critical developmental domain in infants with PAE. Expand
Community Priority setting for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Research in Australia
TLDR
There is need for a national network of researchers to take forward the research commenced by the Centre of Research Excellence, FASD Research Australia, in addressing community priorities. Expand
The Distribution of Available Prevention and Management Interventions for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (2007 to 2017): Implications for Collaborative Actions
TLDR
The uneven distribution of interventions designed for FasD vis-à-vis the burden of FASD in the different regions calls for a concerted effort for knowledge and intervention sharing to enhance the design of contextually sensitive preventive and management policy in theDifferent regions. Expand
Objective Measures of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Current evidence is insufficient to support the use of objective measures of prenatal alcohol exposure in practice, and biomarker test batteries in meconium and placenta tissue may be the most promising candidates for further large-scale population-based research. Expand

A neurodevelopmental framework for the development of interventions for children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
TLDR
A neurodevelopmental framework is presented, based on recent findings from a number of disciplines, for designing new therapies for alcohol-affected children and suggests that the maximum effects of interventions can eventually be achieved by optimally combining behavioral methods and cognition-enhancing drugs.
