Foetal alcohol spectrum disorders describes a group of disorders caused by the consumption of prenatal alcohol. The range of outcomes and the clinical management of these disorders vary in both the complexity of their presentations, associated disorders and management outcomes. This article seeks to review the literature around some of the more difficult areas associated with the condition and present some insights into possible ways of managing the psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders seen in the context of the UK system and the NHS.
