Ask the Expert

Welcome to the “Ask the Expert” page of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Center for Excellence Web site. 
Every month, Dan Dubovsky, M.S.W., the Center’s FASD Specialist, or a special guest will use this space to write about an aspect of FASD in response to questions from the Center’s audience. (For more information about Mr. Dubovsky’s background and his thoughts on the word “expert,” please see our About the Expert section below.)

It is our hope that this column will provide vital, up-to-date information on FASD for a variety of stakeholders. We are particularly excited for this first edition since it gave us the privilege of interviewing Dr. Kenneth Lyons Jones and Dr. Ann Streissguth, two of the seminal early researchers in the field.
