During its first year, the Arctic FASD Regional Training Center conducted two FASD education needs assessments, which assisted us in developing tailored training materials. In both needs assessments the questions were based around the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s seven core FASD competencies.
The results of these two needs assessments were published in the following journals:
