About DiG FASD

The purpose of the “Dissecting the Genetic Contributions to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders” (DiG FASD) study is to understand how genetics affects the various features of FASD.

To do this, researchers at Indiana University are enrolling children (ages 7 – 17) and adults (ages 18 and older) who have been prenatally exposed to alcohol. Participants will be asked to provide contact information, demographic information (such as age, gender, and race), and their health histories (including information about prenatal alcohol exposure and previous FASD evaluations). Participants will be asked to take some facial photographs using a mobile phone, tablet, or digital camera and to provide a saliva sample.  Participation in DiG FASD will all take place from home.  There are no in-person visits.

Who Can Participate?
