Oakland Neuropsychology Center provides fetal alcohol spectrum disorders testing and fetal alcohol effects testing near Southfield MI.

Psychological and Behavioral Signs of Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE)

The physical signs are often the first indicators of FAE. A caregiver or doctor may notice that a child’s head is disproportionate to his or her body, or that the height/weight are below-average for the child’s age. But because FAEs lie on a spectrum, those physical attributes aren’t always apparent. Psychological and behavioral issues provide additional clues to evaluate. Potential signs of FAE include:

  • Learning Disabilities and Hyperactivity
  • Trouble Telling Time, Understanding the Passing of Time or Completing a Task from Start to Finish
  • Struggles with Balance and Coordination
  • Poor Memory and Focus
  • Limited Impulse Control and Poor Judgment
  • Delayed Social Skills
  • Difficulty Communicating and Interacting with Peers
  • Disorganization and Poor Problem Solving
  • Difficulty Planning ahead

Our neuropsychologists gather information during their detailed evaluations to diagnosis if a child has FAS or any other FASD. Oakland Neuropsychology Center is known for having a high accuracy rate for diagnosis. This is why we receive persistent referrals from doctors, schools and therapists in the Southfield area.
