In case you didn’t know, September is National Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Month. Now, I don’t know much about FAS, but I should. Everyone should.
Here’s a quick tutorial, but seriously, if you have a moment Google this and check it out.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is the name given to a continuum of physical and mental health problems that arise as a result of a fetus being exposed to alcohol in utero. A diagnosis of FASD can be hard to make unless a mother discusses her drinking with her doctor or the child’s doctor. Some children may be misdiagnosed as having autism,ADHD,oppositional defiant or conduct disorder,pervasive developmental delay,learning disabilities,emotional/behavior problems,reactive attachment disorder and many other conditions.
