There is a high prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and neurodevelopmental impairment (NDI) among young people who are involved with the justice system. This research investigated the knowledge and practices of custodial staff relating to FASD and NDI using mixed methods, and a workforce training intervention was developed. The intervention was implemented and evaluated with the Western Australian youth custodial workforce, with the purpose of upskilling the workforce in management strategies most effective for young people with FASD and NDI. This research has generated high interest and support from researchers, service-providers and government agencies nationally and internationally.
