Current positions



Dr Alan Price is a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Salford, whose main research interest is fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). His PhD thesis was on the additional impact of childhood trauma on cognitive and behavioural functioning in children with FASD. He is currently working with colleagues at the University of Salford and in the NHS and charity sector to develop and test a training programme for parents and carers of children with FASD, called SPECIFiC. He was involved in the first piece of research to estimate the prevalence of FASD in the UK, which was conducted in Greater Manchester. Alan is a founding member of the UK FASD Research Collaboration, and he is a member of the Professional Advisory Panel for Irish FASD charity EndPAE. Alan has delivered talks and lectures on FASD to academics and other professionals, families affected by FASD, the general public, and students of Public Health, Psychology, Nursing, and Midwifery. He is also part of a group that delivers a regular one-day training event on FASD for paediatricians hosted by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. Alan’s published works include journal articles, magazine articles and book chapters.
