Watson, BradleyKeiver, KPritchard Orr, A.Kerns, K.Macoun, S.
Overall, these outcomes support the idea that prenatal alcohol consumption impairs sustained attention and working memory which are important aspects of executive functioning in children. Physical activity appears to improve sustained attention and working memory in children with an FASD diagnosis. Interventions for FASD children should continue to look to increase the level of physical activity that FASD children participate in as its benefits may have far reading impacts in their lives.
