 THE VISIBLE KID WITH THE INVISIBLE DISABILITY

© 2003 Teresa Kellerman

 

 
Does your child display any of the following behaviors?
 

        Impulsivity

        Inappropriate social behavior 

        Lying or stealing without any reason

        Poor reasoning skills

        Inability to learn from consequences

        Forgetfulness/short term memory loss

        Temper Tantrums

        Time/space confusion

 

Perhaps it is not that they won’t….but that they CAN’T!

 

    It is estimated that at least one out of 100 babies are born in Arizona with significant but often
invisible disabilities due to prenatal exposure to alcohol-Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
This is an umbrella term that covers a large continuum of disabilities.
 
You are not alone in Flagstaff!
