In brief: Fetal alcohol syndro

Early childhood interventions and educational programs designed to build on strengths help children with any disabilities.
Because children with FAS were born with problems shriner's children's hospitals sometimes provide care for even the neediest children. Most states mandate early testing to tailor educational interventions to the child.

In brief: Age? Level of Fcn?

If 3yo & under, many areas have early childhood (child development)programs thru the state.
After 3y school districts have "child find" programs that look for kids that need help prior to school entry. After school entry, individual evaluation programs are part of the public school process when a special need is identified. Your dr or clinic can point u to the local available sources for help.
