C. Identified in a 1973 study by Drs. David Smith and Kenneth Jones and the 1946 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
D. Identified in a 1973 study by Drs. David Smith and Kenneth Jones, a 1968 study by Dr. Paul Lemoine, and a 1981 report by the Surgeon General
E. All of the Above
Identify two studies that had a significant impact on the field of FASD. Select all that apply.
A. A 1973 study in which Drs. Jones and Smith identified specific patterns of malformations, growth deficiencies, and central nervous system defects and coined the term “fetal alcohol syndrome”.
B. A 1995 study on fetal alcohol syndrome and the neurobehavioral effects of prenatal alcohol exposure
C. A 1996 study on secondary disabilities by Dr. Ann Streissguth funded by CDC
D. A 2004 study on pregnancy and alcohol consumptionWant to try your knowledge against more questions like these two or just learn more? Follow the link to the module about Historic Perspectives on Alcohol and Pregnancy. I did not know all the background info they had here. The most important point to me though, is how LONG we've known about this issue and how very little we have learned about how to help those effected.
I'll bet every parent or person caring for someone with FASD can answer these questinos from the next module:

E. All of the above
Alcohol-related brain damage may be indicated by the following conditions or behaviors:
A. Mental retardation
B. Problems with cause and effect
C. Poor impulse control
E. All of the aboveBut if you want to try your knowledge against more questions like these two or just learn more then follow the link to the module about Effects of Alcohol on the Fetus.

A. Weeks 2-7
B. Weeks 3-8
C. Weeks 2-5
D. Weeks 3-9
Identify the correct statement that lists risk factors for FASD.
A. Maternal drinking patterns, fraternal drinking patterns, maternal lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and parity, and timing of alcohol consumption during pregnancy
B. Maternal drinking patterns, genetic susceptibility, maternal lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and parity, fraternal drinking patterns, and timing of alcohol consumption during pregnancy
C. Maternal drinking patterns, genetic susceptibility, maternal lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and parity, maternal absorption and metabolism of alcohol, and timing of alcohol consumption during pregnancy
D. Maternal drinking patterns, maternal smoking, extended periods of sleeplessness during pregnancy, and maternal absorption and metabolism of alcohol Binge drinking (drinking 4 four or more drinks in 1 sitting) about 2 hours) has the same effect on the developing fetus as having 1 one drink per day for 4 days.You can find more questions like these two or learn more in the module about Risk Factors for FASD.
I'm not sure I learned anything in these first three modules that directly helps me help Little Man. But I did pick up facts and stats that have helped when dealing with his school and knowing how to talk their "lingo" has helped me with doctors that I need to interface with. So it has helped me advocate for him more effectively and that makes it worth knowing for me.
