Consensus Statement on Legal Issues of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
This consensus statement on Legal Issues of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the product of a unique IHE Consensus Development Conference held in September 2013. The event was a three-day juried hearing of evidence and scientific findings that allowed for the engagement and collaboration of citizens and decision makers in government and the justice system in addressing a specific set of key questions on legal issues related to FASD.
- What are the implications of FASD for the legal system?
- How can efforts to identify people with FASD in the legal system be improved?
- How can the criminal justice system respond more effectively to people with FASD?
- How can family courts and the family/child welfare legal system address the specific needs of people with FASD?
- What are the best practices for guardianship, trusteeship and social support in a legal context?
- What legal measures are there in different jurisdictions to contribute to the prevention of FASD, and what are the ethical and economic implications of these measures?
