Learning the dangers of fetal alcohol exposure
This workshop teaches middle school and high school students about the life-long damage that can result for an unborn child whose mother drinks alcohol during pregnancy.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are an array of disorders including mental retardation, learning and behavior problems, organ dysfunction, and physical and neurological deficits caused by fetal alcohol exposure.
This workshop utilizes video and oral presentations along with a life-like doll for demonstrations. The program is the length of a regular class hour and is an ideal addition to curricula for health, life skills and child development classes.
