Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder, or FASD, is a preventable neurological disorder that an individual is born with due to prenatal alcohol exposure.
Health issues that individuals with FASD may experience include those related to the immune, cardiovascular, urinary tract, skeletal and nervous systems. Physical characteristics associated with FASD include shorter height, lower weight, a smaller head circumference and possible facial differences. While no amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy, there exist many myths surrounding this advice.
This game addresses myths around Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder in a way that will help students sort out what is true and false about people living with FASD and around drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Students will be given statements about the issues, and asked to place their statement under the category of Fact or Fiction. Group discussion can occur from there. Answer keys and additional notes for the instructor on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder are included.
