Masters Title: Young people in detention in Western Australia: An examination of motor skills and the effect of prenatal alcohol exposure
The aims of this research were to review what is known about motor impairments in adolescents with FASD and Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (PAE). Following this, the research aimed to assess and characterise motor performance in young people in a Western Australian youth detention centre with a high level of FASD, and explore the relationship between motor skills, FASD and PAE.
