FASD Evaluations

There are two parts to receiving a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) diagnosis:
  1. Medical portion: a physician visit to review your child's medical history and perform a physical evaluation and developmental assessment

  2. Neuropsychology: a neuropsychologist visit for cognitive and developmental testing

The Adoption Medicine Clinic provides the medical portion of the FASD evaluation as part of the Comprehensive Child Wellness Assessment. Neuropsychology testing prior to the medical exam is preferred, but not required. The Adoption Medicine Clinic can help refer you to a neuropsychologist, if needed. To schedule an appointment with the Adoption Medicine Clinic, please call 612-365-6777.
