Synopsis: Given the approximately 4 million births per year in the United States, there are up to 6,000 children born each year with FAS. But the problem is even worse than these statistics suggest. Data from the 2008-2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, based on a national sample of women, revealed that in the first trimester of pregnancy, 20.4% drink alcohol. Thus, 800,000 children across the United States each year may be born with abnormalities of brain structure and function due to prenatal alcohol exposure. These children can suffer from a broad range of difficulties that, while often quite subtle, can compromise the children’s long-term health, behavior, development, and academic achievement.
