Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could help me. My mothers partner was told he had Asperger's early last year, however, after researching FASD for an assignment, I believe he has FASD .
What are the common signs of FASD in adults? My mothers partner did not receive any help with any form of condition as a child from his adoptive parents, or school when growing up.
He is has all the physical symptoms of FASD, short, small head, thin lip etc., he is also incredibly forgetful, forgetting things he is being constantly reminded of, focuses on small, trivial things, like changing the kitchen bin twice a day, he can never seem to find anything, even if it's right in front of him and he's looking at it, unless it's pointed out, he can't seem to see it. He isn't very good with people socially, and has no friends, and doesn't attempt to make any, he has a very weird way of talking, almost whiney. He is also very violent and unpredictable, he compulsively lies, even about things as trivial as dropping the hoover.
Does anyone think this sounds like FASD? Just looking for some answers, thank you x
