Abstract

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term used to describe lifelong effects that can occur when an unborn baby is exposed to alcohol (Wilson, 2013). FASD is a worldwide issue and affects individuals of all races and socioeconomic statues. It is irreversible, however, if diagnosed early, individuals can receive interventions to help improve their quality of life. A systematic literature review was conducted to address the research question, what research-based interventions are available for children with fetal alcohol syndrome. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, thirteen articles were analyzed. The articles included in the study address interventions in areas such as behavioral interventions, social skills, educational interventions and safety skills.
