FASD Service Handbook
The FASD Service Handbook describes resources that have proven useful to people living with a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and their families in Minnesota. Our goal is to help you know what’s available so you’re in a better position to seek out the resources that will improve quality of life for you and your family.
Advocacy Tip: Many providers focus on helping people recover from mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Check that your provider understands that FASD involves brain injury that should be taken into account for treatment to be as effective as possible.
Advocacy Tip: Do you or your child need more services than your current insurance covers? Ask your county social services agency for a MnCHOICES assessment to see if you qualify for a grant or waiver that can pay for more services.
Advocacy Tip: Did you know that parents and caregivers can receive "parent pay" to provide disability services to your own child? This option is available through Consumer Support Grants, Family Support Grants, PCA, and Waivers.
