Special appreciation is given to Lesley Doering and Patricia Walsh, Senior Research Analysts, Strategic Policy and Research Section, Division of Childhood and Adolescence; Mary Johnston, Manager Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Team; and Christina Stanford, Senior Research Analyst for providing invaluable input throughout the planning of the study and the writing of the report.
