DSM-5 and FASD Explained: Thank You POPFASD!
Our friends at the Provincial Outreach Program for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (also known as POPFASD) just posted a video of Dr. Christine Lilley explaining the ins-and-outs of diagnosing a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) with the DSM-5 (the book that psychiatrists and psychologists use to diagnose mental health and substance abuse conditions).
She does a terrific job of explaining the changes in the DSM-5 with respect to FASD, so we re-posted it here. If you’re interested, you can subscribe to POPFASD’s excellent YouTube video channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWRoE1YnO371Fc_hWx6Pnhg
POPFASD does top-notch work, so I highly recommend watching it the video:
For reference, here is the FASD Elephant podcast about Preparing for an FASD evaluation.
Comment below on how this helps you understand how the DSM-5 makes an FASD diagnosis or what questions you still have.
