Abstract

This current research attempts to further our understanding of the experience of children who do not have FASD but whose parents’ main issue of risk identified by the child welfare system in Manitoba concerned alcohol abuse. In order to allow some comparison, similar courses of study were followed as conducted by Fuchs et al. concerning the experience of children in care with FASD on trajectories of care (2007) and the cost of care (2008). This report focuses on the cost of child welfare care for children without FASD whose parents presented at intake for alcohol misuse issues.
