Introduction: Current literature about interventions for adults with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is limited, which is a
concern, due to the high prevalence of FASD. FASD creates lifelong physical, mental, cognitive and behavioral deficits, which
impacts many aspects of daily living. Community-based interventions are necessary to better support adults with FASD and provide
them with the opportunity to achieve success in their daily lives and social participation. This scoping review aimed to identify
elements for developing successful community-based interventions for these individuals.
Method: A search was conducted in the MEDLINE, PsycINFO, CINAHL, and EMBASE databases and supplementary gray literature
was resourced. Articles were selected based on inclusion–exclusion criteria, and a thematic analysis was completed to identify and
present relevant findings.
Results: Seven articles met selection criteria and were included in this review. Six emerging themes were identified: inclusion of a
functional context, individualized support, education for service providers, structure and routine, utilizing a strengths-based
approach, and environmental adaptations. These themes were used to present the findings related to the elements necessary
for developing interventions for adults with FASD.
Conclusion: The results indicate that the identified elements may be necessary to develop successful interventions, especially
community-based interventions, for adults with FASD.
