Information collected during the diagnostic assessment should be reviewed, ideally in a multi-disciplinary team context, to evaluate the strength of evidence to:
- support a diagnosis of FASD with 3 sentinel facial features or a diagnosis of FASD with less than 3 sentinel facial features; or
- consider whether the individual is at risk of FASD, requiring reassessment and/or further investigation; or
- exclude other causes of conditions; and/or
- assess the potential influence of other exposures and events
Information on co-existing conditions or other syndromes can be found in Appendix D of the Australian Guide to the diagnosis of FASD.
The FASD Diagnostic Assessment Form (Appendix A1) and the Summary Form (Appendix A2) summarise the clinical findings required to make a diagnosis of FASD.
