In alignment with our mission and the mission of the University of Minnesota’s Department of Pediatrics, the Adoption Medicine Clinic strives to educate families, physicians, medical trainees, social workers, and other professions that support children who have been adopted or that have been placed in foster care. Our resources include printable handouts, video content, podcasts, medical journal publications, and more. The content provided covers a wide range of topics regarding both physical health and mental health of children. 

We will continue to add to the resources that are listed on our website. Please reach out to if there is a resource you need assistance finding.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Resources

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are caused when an individual is prenatally exposed to alcohol. Though there is no cure, proper diagnosis and early intervention can positively impact the development of an individual with an FASD. At the Adoption Medicine Clinic, we screen all patients for FASD and provide supports to families impacted by this disorder.
