Do you suspect that your middle or high schooler may be affected by exposure to alcohol during pregnancy?

Come to a support group for parents and caregivers who are facing the same challenges. This group is appropriate for birth parents as well as foster/adoptive parents.  The emphasis is on what to do, not on what caused the condition.

Alcohol exposure can affect the developing fetus in several ways, but the long-term outcome for the affected individual relates to behavior.  Most children with FASD have a perfectly normal appearance. In fact, he/she may be of normal intelligence and have no physical symptoms. However, the developing brain may have been affected in a number of ways including the following:

  • Make poor decisions
  • Do not consider the consequences of their actions
  • Act out when frustrated and have melt-downs
  • Steal and lie when the truth would do just as well
  • May be considered ADHD, emotionally disordered, learning disabled
  • Do not remember what they have been taught
