Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) is the label given to a number of challenges that can be caused by alcohol intake by the mother during pregnancy. Even small amounts of alcohol has been shown to lead to a wide variety of negative symptoms such as physical, mental, and behavioral abnormalities. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is the most common and severe end of the FASD spectrum. Children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome tend to have trouble with learning, memory retention, maintaining attention, vision, hearing, communication and social skills.
The main physical manifestations of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome include: small head size, deficiency in weight and/or height, and a smooth philtrum (ridge between the nose and upper lip). In a lot of cases they can also exhibit heart and kidney problems and some instances, deformed limbs or fingers. Children with FAS can also experience sleeping problems, hyperactivity, and mood swings, which lead to irritability and poorer retention in educational settings.
Most symptoms involving Fetal Alcohol Syndrome associated with the central nervous system can be addressed using the NeuroDevelopmental Approach offered at Brain Sprints.

Do you conduct a screening test for every child who enters your NeuroDevelopmental Educational Training?
– A full NeuroDevelopmental in-person or video evaluation is recommended to uncover the root causes of inefficiencies leading to the child’s struggles. We still encourage parents to take the conventional FASD diagnostic test for children available through the public school or outside testing agencies, but we require a separate one so we can form a concrete action plan base on the NeuroDevelopmental the NeuroDevelopmental Approach. In our view, gaining the cause of the struggle and addressing that with a customized action plan is much more effective than just labeling and modifying.
What is the NeuroDevelopmental process for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?
– In a nutshell, the NeuroDevelopmental Approach for FAS is a whole child approach. Addressing the sensory, auditory, and visual input as well as tactile functions at the root all while stimulating motor output in gross motor, fine motor, and language functions. Of course each child has a different situation, and we consider all factors first before crafting a solid action plan. Our experts would be happy to guide you through the process once you schedule a free consultation.
When can my child start NeuroDevelopmental Educational Training for FAS?
– At Brain Sprints, we encourage an early start (even as young as infancy) for NeuroDevelopmental Brain Training for children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. However, do not be discouraged if your child is already older. It is never too early or too late to boost your child’s learning process. Our parent-lead services and brain boosting products are available for children of all ages. Brain Coach facilitated programs are provided at our Brain Sprints center in McKinney, TX from 8 years and up on a case by case basis.
Is there a cure for FAS?
– There is no cure for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or other Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. However, there is a way to make your child’s quality of life in school and in the future significantly better. The NeuroDevelopmental Approach can greatly reduce the symptoms from this insult to the child’s central nervous system.
As fellow parents, the staff at Brain Sprints understand that it can be frustrating to see our children struggle in coping with the symptoms of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or any other learning disability. This is why we want to give you a chance to give a long-term solution to your child’s everyday hardship. Unlike other companies that provide traditional tutoring, the ultimate goal of Brain Sprints is not to help your child cope with the disability but to impact the underlying causes of the struggle. This approach produces major gains in both educational pursuits but everyday functional/social abilities.
