The Neurocognitive Effects of Maternal Prenatal Alcohol Consumption on the Fetus and the Postnatal Development

National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) Webinar

Specific cognitive functional domains disruptions as related to prenatal alcohol consumption will be reviewed providing an understanding of how each lobe may be affected as well as higher order cognitive functions. In addition, developmental and functional outcomes related to prenatal alcohol exposure will be explored utilizing a developmental approach to understand how functionality may vary from the neurotypical child. Also, assessments utilized to better understand specific neurocognitive, developmental, and functional deficits will be discussed to provide practitioners with greater understanding of tools available to aid in determining deficits. Finally, interventions based upon common neurocognitive, developmental, and functional deficits will be discussed to enable practitioners locate community resources to better serve the needs of the child and family.
