Not a lot of research has been done to understand the full experience of caring for someone with FASD across the lifespan. We are doing a study to collect information from caregivers of individuals with FASD. We want to better understand their unique perspectives and capture their wisdom about people with FASD.
Prenatal Alcohol Exposure, Brain Development, and Mental Health
Mental health challenges are common in children, youth, and adults with prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). If these challenges are not treated, they can persist for many years. Many mental health problems first emerge in adolescence, but we don’t know a lot about exactly how and when mental health problems begin for people with PAE.
Participants needed for adults with FASD and cannabis survey
Some people with FASD use pot (also known as marijuana, weed, cannabis) to help them with their health problems. Researchers think that adults with FASD might use pot more often than other adults, but they don’t know much about it.
Caregivers’ voices needed for Alberta study on FASD and suicide prevention
Rates of mental health challenges and suicide are disproportionately high for people with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). Researchers from the University of Calgary are working on a new project to understand the risk factors and opportunities for suicide prevention among youth with FASD.
Research Participants Needed for Families Facing COVID-19 Study
Researchers from across Canada are looking to study how the pandemic has changed the lives of neurodiverse individuals and their families. They are asking for families of children, youth, and adults with FASD to complete a short online survey about their experiences during COVID-19.
Looking for research participants for an online study!
Researchers at the University of British Columbia are conducting a study on chronic health in young adults diagnosed with FASD or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). Specifically, we are interested in how brain impairment and physical health are related in this population, and how they affect the quality of day to day life.
Call for FASD Clinicians!
Dr. Mela from the University of Saskatchewan is looking for FASD clinicians to help evaluate the first-ever FASD medication algorithm.
