Organizations starting with F

Family Centered

Approach to planning and implementing services for children with disabilities and their families which makes the family, not just the child, the focus of intervention. Family-centered approaches make family members key participants in developing services and supports and in deciding when, where and how often these will be provided.

Family-Support Services

Services, supports and other assistance provided to families of individuals with disabilities. Such services are designed to strengthen the family’s role as primary caregiver, prevent inappropriate out-of-home placement, maintain family unity, and reunite families with children who have been placed out of the home.

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)

A combination of physical and mental disabilities which develops in babies before birth when the mother drinks a substantial amount of alcoholic beverages during pregnancy.
