New FASD diagnostic categories in Australia

The Australian FASD Diagnostic Instrument has adopted the concept that Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) be used as a diagnostic term. A diagnosis of FASD can be divided into one of two sub-categories:


  • FASD with three sentinel facial features (similar to the previous diagnostic category of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome)
  • FASD with less than three facial features (this encompasses the previous diagnostic categories of Partial Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Neurodevelopmental Disorder - Alcohol Exposed)
