Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

Any quantity of alcohol during pregnancy has been associated with a host of lifelong effects on the developing fetus. On this program we will look at the evidence for this, describe the effects, discuss how the diagnosis of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is made, and enumerate efforts for prevention. There is no treatment that reverses these effects of alcohol.
