Assessing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder in women offenders: PS83-3/346E-PDF

"Previous research has demonstrated that individuals diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) are more likely to be in trouble with the law, and rates of FASD are higher in correctional populations than in non-incarcerated populations. Examining the issue of FASD in correctional populations is important because many of the associated impairments may affect offenders' ability to adjust to an institutional environment or the benefit fully from interventions and services.".--Intro.
