If you're looking for the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) you have come to the right place. We have some exciting news about our organization. We have a new name! MOFAS has officially been renamed Proof Alliance. Our mission remains the same: to prevent prenatal alcohol exposure and to improve the quality of life for people living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
We now have the proof that prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of brain injury in children. We have the proof that FASD is 100% preventable and people living with an FASD can reach 100% of their potential.
We seek to build powerful alliances with people with an FASD, their families, legislators, experts in the field, new partners, and community members to bring awareness, research, and services to this field.
Proof Alliance is rebranding, expanding, and we're moving! We have a new logo, website, and prevention campaign to help change the norms around drinking during pregnancy. And in May 2019 we will be moving to a stand-alone building. Proof Alliance commits to the people of Minnesota and we will continue to develop transformative programs to help Minnesotans impacted by FASD.

Strategies for optimizing success: Techniques for improving outcomes for individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) can occur in any community where women drink during pregnancy. Individuals affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol can have behavior problems and learning disabilities, and the effects are reflected throughout their everyday lives. The behavior problems and learning disabilities are caused by the brain damage as a result of the prenatal exposure to alcohol. Professionals, care-givers and educators who work with individuals affected by FASD often struggle to be effective in the school and home environments.
This work shop presents strategies for improving outcomes and effectively intervening on behavioral problems and cognitive deficits.
