Preventable Developmental Disabilities

Many developmental disabilities are 100% preventable.

The prevention of brain injuries is absolutely fundamental to preventing developmental disabilities (DDs). The TOPDD primarily addresses the prevention of acquired child brain injury and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.  The disabilities associated with brain injury and prenatal alcohol exposure are complex and impact every area of life.
