Recent surveillance studies funded by the NIAAA found the prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) to be as high as one in twenty students in schools in four states. Less than one percent of the actual cases were diagnosed. Persons with FASD are over represented in child welfare and criminal justice systems, making the condition one of the largest public health issues as well as the greatest cause of preventable intellectual disabilities. The AUCD network is positioned to provide leadership in preventing and intervening with FASD. This webinar will provide knowledge about FASD and tools to become involved, including connections with others in the network who are providing leadership and with national resources.

President's Fiscal Year 2019 Budget

Analysis of the Impact on People with Disabilities

President Donald Trump on February 12 released his budget proposal to Congress for Fiscal Year 2019, which will cover October 1, 2018-September 30, 2019 (FY19). The entire budget can be found on the White House homepage. In general, President Trum's budget, titled "Efficient, Effective, Accountable: An American Budget," would dramatically impact Americans with disabilities, with cuts far deeper than any ever enacted. The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) examines the budget's cuts to the national network of university-based interdisciplinary programs, key disability programs, research, and a broad set of public services critical to the lives of people with disabilities.
