Summary
A cross-sectional survey conducted in one First Nation community in Manitoba to determine the prevalence of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) among school-aged children (ages 5 to 15 years.) A four part study was conducted that included: a maternal interview, alcohol use during pregnancy using the TWEAK screening questionnaire, dysmorphology assessment by a clinical geneticist, and psychoeducational testing by a trained retired teacher. Out of the 178 children studied, 11 were indentified as FAS and an additional 7 were indentified as partial FAS. Thus, a total of 10% of the children from the group study showed affects of FAS. FAS was then shown to be responsible for decreased height, weight, head circumference and palpebral fissure lengths, and midface hypoplasia
