The development of tools to help identify the disorder in offender<br>populations would enhance treatment and intervention outcomes, while preventing subsequent<br>criminality. This article addresses issues related to the development of screening tools, including<br>the current state of screening, presence of comorbid symptomology, warning signs that should<br>trigger screening, and consequences of inaccurate identification. The development of effective<br>tools is critical as a means to effectively identify and modify approaches for working with<br>offenders with FASD.</p> Jerrod Brown ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-06-11 2018-06-11 1 2
