BTC - FASD Diagnostic Clinic

BTC benefits from the service of a paediatrician/toxicologist from the Hospital for Sick Children's Motherisk Program who holds a weekly clinic on site. The paediatrician sees all of the children and takes a detailed prenatal exposure history. The children are seen in the clinic every six months for follow-up related to their prenatal substance exposure, or more frequently based on either the assessment of the physician or questions and concerns of the mother. FASD assessments and paediatric follow-up occur for all BTC children who have confirmed prenatal alcohol exposure. When appropriate, additional referrals are made for further assessments and/or diagnoses. Information and education are provided to the mother regarding the effects of her prenatal substance use, and any questions regarding breastfeeding and substance use are addressed.
