Q:We read that it is almost impossible to diagnose FAS before the age of 2 years. Is that true?
 

A: Yes and no. In severe cases (with obvious signs of the FAS body/face features) it is possible to make a diagnosis as early as 12 months of age. The real problem is that many symptoms of FAS may be found only later in the child's life. Unfortunately, those symptoms (e.g. impaired cognitive functioning, attention problems, etc.) may seriously complicate life of the parents and the child.
