Effective teaching strategies begin with the recognition and understanding that these students have sustained neurological damage due to prenatal exposure to alcohol.

Prenatal Exposure To Drugs Has Lasting Effects. While it is difficult to know with any certainty whether behavioral or cognitive issues into adulthood relate to prenatal exposure to drugs or to compromised environments, a clear pattern of symptoms and side effects emerges in the outcomes of these drug-exposed individuals. One of the first studies came from Australia in , where researchers compared the academic progress of students who had a history of prenatal drug exposure with a group of students with similar demographics but not born with NAS. The mean test scores of the children born drug-affected were lower than those of their counterparts.

The oldest crack-affected children today are only 8 years old, but older children whose mothers took cocaine during pregnancy offer us a window on how crack-affected children will act when they reach high school. Teachers report that cocaine-affected school-age children are still impulsive and sometimes violent.
While these million children will not all experience abuse or neglect, they are at increased risk for child maltreatment and child welfare involvement compared to other children. 1 The children who are at a greater risk may be affected by trauma due to parental neglect, the results of their own prenatal substance exposure, chaotic.
We provide intensive training in effective teaching and socialization techniques for these difficult children. This website is intended to share information on children affected by prenatal exposure to cocaine, crack, methamphetamines, alcohol and other drugs.

Prenatal exposure to amphetamines has lasting subtle effects on neonatal brain structure and function. Some studies have shown decreased volume of the caudate, putamen, and globus pallidus (anatomic components of brain) in methamphetamine-exposed children, whereas other studies have not uniformly confirmed these studies indicate that prenatal methamphetamine exposure.
BABY STEPS: CARING FOR BABIES WITH PRENATAL SUBSTANCE EXPOSURE ii USING THIS MANUAL This caregiver guide is intended to be a hands-on resource for parents and caregivers of babies who have been prenatally exposed to alcohol and other drugs.

In a neuroimaging study of this population, 78 morphometric cerebral characteristics were studied in 9- to year-old children with prenatal exposure to opiates and other drugs (n = 14) compared to unexposed controls (n = 14).
Compared to controls, the drug-exposed children had smaller intracranial and brain volumes, including smaller cerebral cortex, amygdala, Cited by: Prenatal Development: Environmental Influences (cont) •Maternal factors –Drug intake (everything makes its way to the fetus) •Medical drugs –DES» Taken from late ’s to early ’s for prevention of miscarriage» Daughters in puberty got cervical cancer, vaginal cancer» In midlife, twice the risk of breast cancerFile Size: 2MB.
