Fetal alcohol syndrome

i`m sitting here going over my marriage in my head and have drawn correlations between some symptoms exhibited by children with fetal alcohol syndrome and my former step daughter.
does anybody here have first hand experience with the developmental characteristics of kindergarten age F.A.S. children?

I work w/ developmentally delayed 0-3 yr. olds and have some experience w/ FAS. Facial characteristics can tell you alot..flattened face, low set ears, no philtrum (dent above upper lip). One of the main probelms FAS kids can have is retention. Literally learning something one day and not having the skill the next. Can have behavior issues as well. Should be tons more info. on the net.
