Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Fetal alcohol syndrome:
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: NWHIC (Excerpt)
FAS describes a "pattern of abnormalities observed in children born
to alcoholic mothers." FAS may result in various birth defects: prenatal
and/or postnatal growth retardation (weight and/or length below the 10th
percentile); central nervous system involvement, including neurological
abnormalities, developmental delays, behavioral dysfunction, intellectual
impairment, and skull or brain malformations; and a characteristic face
with short palpebral fissures (eye openings), a thin upper lip, and an
elongated, flattened midface and philtrum (the groove in the middle of the
upper lip). Mental handicaps and hyperactivity are probably the most
debilitating aspects of FAS, and prenatal alcohol exposure is one of the
leading known causes of mental retardation in the Western World. Problems
with learning, attention, memory, and problem solving are common, along
with in coordination, impulsiveness, and speech and hearing impairment.
Deficits in learning skills persist even into adolescence and adulthood.
Prenatal alcohol exposure may also cause a more subtle pattern of physical
and cognitive deficits, making diagnosis more difficult. Deficits in
learning skills persist into adolescence and adulthood. (Source: excerpt from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: NWHIC)
