Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a non-diagnostic term that covers a range of related birth defects resulting from prenatal alcohol exposure. Under this umbrella term, are several diganostic categories such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), partial Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (pFAS), Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND), and Alcohol Related Birth Defects (ARBD). Compared to control children, children with FASD will display cognitive impairment in executive functioning as evidenced by results on a test of sustained attention.
