My son has autism and I never drank. I also currently work with autistic children , and have worked with FAS kids in the past.
Kids with FAS have distinct physical features and symptoms that do not mirror those of autism.[/QUOTE] They aren't the same as you say. So much misinformation floats around that confuses people, but its intentional to divde and conquer publi opinion.

Not all kids with FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) have physical characteristics of FAS or FASD. Not all women who have FASD kids know they drank during pregnancy. Most women don't find out they are pregnant until they are 4-6 weeks along, which if you drank even a glass of wine prior to that (regardless of those doctors who state it doesn't harm the fetus-IT DOES) then the fetus can be affected. The brain is the first part of the fetus that begins to develop and if the fetus has been exposed to alcohol during the first weeks of development, many different FASD can take place. Depending on WHAT stage of pregnancy a mother drinks, the symptoms (physical, mental, behavioral, central nervous system, developmental, learning disability, etc.) will vary. Because FAS is the only official "diagnosis" , there are very limited resources for treatment of FASD because the other symptoms are not recognized as a "diagnosis". I believe many children ARE misdiagnosed with Autism when in fact it could be FASD. Here is website with more info: http://www.fasdcenter.samhsa.gov/documents/WY...
