Is it ADHD or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?

by TJ

I was asked how to know if a child's problem is ADHD or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). It was also noted that this child doesn't eat healthy.


It is interesting to note the similarities between the 2. They both have hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention issues, memory issues, poor judgement, and distractibility. But the biggest difference are the way the child looks and grows.



With FAS, the child may have growth and mental retardation, small eyes with droopy top eyelids, a short upturned nose, flattened cheeks, and a small jaw. If the child has FAS, it definitely is the problem.

In the video I briefly discuss diet and how that can make things worse. I encourage to try and find ways to provide better quality foods even if it is the same diet and work on making small changes.
