Synopsis: Children affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs often suffer from brain abnormalities that compromise critical brain structures related to attention, executive function, and memory. Studies show, however, that long term memory is generally unaffected. The instructional challenge for educators, then, becomes how to assist the child to acquire new information since the problem is one of encoding, rather than retrieval. Utilizing what we know about the way prenatal exposure compromises the learning process, effective instructional strategies, then, must focus on activities and interventions that help the child to overcome the known areas of deficit. These include strategies to self-regulate emotional states of arousal in order to maintain attention to task, organizational strategies that help the child to connect new information with existing information and concepts, and strategies that encourage the use of multiple neural pathways to strengthen the connections to long-term memory.
