Hi I'm looking for some help and advice please. We have a 10 year old son who we adopted when he was 4. We have always known that he has some social and cognitive challenges along with other processing problems. School have been great with him but he is labelled as a 'naughty child' who hurts others and does not follow instructions well, he tends to freeze when faced with pressure or difficult moments. He is good at maths but really struggles with English and is falling way below. In my ignorance, because he did not have physical features of fasd I dismissed it. His birth mother drank alcohol when pregnant. School have involved behaviour assessments in the past to address the hurting others behaviours but I feel that I want more supportive input now as this is his last year in primary. I am completely convinced that he has fasd. What are the best actions for us to take now? Should I go to the GP?
