Q: Can't my daughter develop fetal alcohol related problems later?
 

A: The real problem is that many symptoms of FAS may be found only later in the child's life. Unfortunately, those symptoms (e.g. the impaired cognitive functioning, attention problems, etc.) may seriously complicate life of the parents and the child. I personally would not risk making a determination SOLELY on a picture or a videotype of a child, although there are certain clinical symptoms related to facial and bodily features of a child with FAS. What is more important, however, is that the absence of "classical" features of FAS does not mean the absence of the disorder.
