What Are the Signs of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?

Fetal alcohol syndrome can have a combination of physical and psychological symptoms. A child with FAS may have a short build, a small head size, a specific facial structure consistent with FASD, or vision/hearing problems. This is not the only way to detect FAS though. Other signs of fetal alcohol syndrome include:

  • Poor Judgement and Impulses
  • Limited Social Skills and Difficulties Interacting with Peers
  • Poor Perception of Time
  • Hyperactivity and Learning Disabilities
  • Difficulties with Balance and Coordination
  • Delayed Communication Skills and Memory Struggles
  • Struggles with Planning, Organizing, Problem Solving and Staying on Task

Our clinical psychologists know how to evaluate these symptoms and other indicators to accurately diagnose a child’s underlying condition. If you’d like more information or you want to schedule an appointment for fetal alcohol syndrome testing in Metro Detroit, please call (248) 644-9466.
