    "This report is a collaborative effort of the National Task Force on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effect (NTFFASFAE), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) FAS Prevention Team, National Center for Health Marketing Community Guide Branch, and Research Triangle Institute International (RTI). Evidence for this report began with a systematic search of the literature to identify community-level FASD interventions and policies that can prevent AEPs and reduce the prevalence of physical, mental, behavioral, and learning disabilities due to prenatal alcohol exposure. This evidence, along with the findings and recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force on behavioral counseling interventions for alcohol misuse, helped lay the groundwork for the information presented in this report. The report reviews the current evidence on prevention strategies to reduce alcohol use and AEPs, provides recommendations on promoting and improving these strategies, and offers future research directions in the field of FASD prevention. It also serves as a guide for those in the research and practice fields interested in selecting and implementing effective, scientifically tested interventions for women at risk for an AEP."
