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
