Foetal Alcohol Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Foetal alcohol syndrome is an alternate spelling of fetal alcohol syndrome.
 
Fetal alcohol syndrome (a condition directly linked to alcohol consumption during pregnancy) often results in birth defects, mental problems, and behavioral problems. The condition is completely preventable; if a woman does not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, her child will not develop the condition.
 
While fetal alcohol syndrome is irreversible, researchers have identified several factors that may help improve the outcome for someone with the condition. Such factors include early diagnosis, involvement in special education, and the absence of violence, among others. Certain treatment options (such as hearing aids and eyeglasses) can also help minimize the effects of the condition.
