This Special Issue ‘Advances in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)’ aims to illuminate the current state of knowledge in research relevant to children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and their families. Specifically, we invite submissions that advance our understanding of FASD mechanistic insights, prevention, epidemiology, diagnosis, developmental trajectories, and interventions. Given international calls to reduce the harms caused by prenatal alcohol exposure, we also welcome submissions that focus on the policy context and service provision for FASD. We also encourage submissions that consider a strengths-based perspective among children with FASD.
