Cognitive Effects

Alcohol damage to a baby’s developing brain and central nervous system may cause many problems that show up as cognitive deficits.

These include

  • visual/spatial problems
  • sensory integration problems
  • executive functioning problems
  • inability to process abstract thinking

Cognitive deficits impact the person’s rate of learning and processing information. People with FASD typically need a slower learning pace and one-on-one help.
