The "Complex Issue" Series: FASD and Crime, Part 2

Source: Smart on Crime in Waterloo Region (blog), November 26, 2011

Excerpt: "The Toronto Star has reported on a study known as "Early Years Study 3" authored by Dr. Fraser Mustard, Kerry McQuaig and Margaret Norrie McCain where the case is made for starting school at the age of two. Why? Because the sooner support is provided, the more successful we are at addressing social and mental health barriers. In the case of Bill C-10, if amendments could be made that would increase government investment in providing support early on, not only with those with FASD, but with other mental health concerns, the costs of having to address these issues later, when it is much more difficult and costlier, will be reduced."
