How it presents

Although alcohol can affect the development of all cells and organs, the brain is particularly vulnerable to the effects of alcohol exposure.

As a result, children and adults with FASD often experience difficulties in dealing with information. They may find it hard to translate hearing into doing, thinking into saying, reading into speaking or feeling into words.

They may also have difficulty in applying specific learning to new experiences or situations and in perceiving similarities and differences. This means they may not be able to see patterns, predict events or make judgments.
