The Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) Diagnostic Team
The Department of Education and the Child Development Center work together to provide diagnostic and support services for Yukon children and youth from birth to 18 years of age. Assessments are completed by a team of therapists including an educational psychologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, speech-language pathologist and pediatrician. A report with information about the assessment as well as recommendations will be provided as well as support to access other services.
