According to Ann Streissguth Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and director of the Fetal Alcohol and Drug unit at the University of Washington, ARBD’s such as neurological disorders, cognitive deficits, behavioral anomalies, seizures, hyperactivity, attention deficient disorder and personality disorders may appear as these children mature into adolescence.
Individuals with FAS/ARND typically have problems with memory, judgment, and reason. In 1996, Streissguth et al. presented a summary on the secondary disabilities in individuals with FAS or ARBD. Six main secondary disabilities were examined in 405- 415 FAS/ARND clients from ages 3 to 51. Her research concluded that 94% had mental health problems, 60% (age 12 and over) had disrupted school experience, 60% (age 12 and over) had trouble with the law, 50% (age 12 and over) had been confined (incarceration or inpatient drug or mental health), 50% (age 12 and over) had displayed inappropriate sexual behavior, 35% (age 12 and over) had drug or alcohol addictions, 83% (age 21 and over) could not live independently, and 79% (age 21 and over) had employment problems (Streissguth, Barr, Kogan, & Bookstein, 1996). Ann Streissguth’s 1996 research findings document that the majority of individuals with FAS/ARND end up with various secondary disabilities. These secondary disabilities result in these individuals needing support from their communities.
