Research

At the Asante Centre, our practice is informed by up-to-date research to address Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other complex developmental needs.  In addition, we contribute to ongoing research efforts by maintaining a clinical database, participating in coordinated research program planning with community agencies and academic institutions, and conducting research studies.
