FASD Now is a coalition of individuals and organizations in California with the common vision of seeing FASD recognized as the leading developmental disability in the state. With that recognition, we envision appropriate training of professionals in all systems of care, reduction of the prevalence of FASD, development of diagnostic capacity across the state, and appropriate supports and services for the individuals with FASD and their caregivers.
