After all the assessments have been completed the doctor will share the results of the medical and other assessments and discuss the diagnosis, which may be FASD or another diagnosis. You should ask any questions you have and ask for a copy of the assessment findings. This may be in the form of a letter or a report. This may be provided at the appointment or mailed to you after the appointment. Also ask if you can phone the doctor or another member of the team with any questions once you have had time to read the information the doctor has given you and you have had the opportunity to discuss the diagnosis with members of your family.
More information for parents and carers can be found in in the Australian Guide to the diagnosis of FASD 'After the assessment'.
Contact NOFASD Australia for information, support and advice.
A management plan based on the person’s specific needs should be prepared by the health professionals who have completed the assessments. Visit Managing FASD for more information on management and interventions.
