Evaluating family support for children with FASD or an "At Risk" designation

The primary aim of this project is to evaluate a family support process for families with young children who have received a diagnosis of FASD (including ‘At Risk’ for FASD, as per the Australia Guidelines). Effectiveness will be examined across a range of outcomes, including: child executive function, child emotional and behavioural difficulties, parent/caregiver well being, parent/caregiver emotion regulation, and quality of the caregiver-child relationship. 

A secondary aim of the project is to examine the barriers and facilitators for engagement in family support. For further information about the study and/or taking part please email us at or phone Professor Sharon Dawe on 07 3735 3371.
