Summary
Focusing on Native American populations, this program profiles an eight-year-old Apache boy who was born with FAS, showing how alcohol ingested by the mother crosses the placenta and enters the bloodstream of the fetus and describing common birth defects, learning disabilities, mental handicaps, and behavioral problems typically associated with the disorder. The program also examines babies born to cocaine-addicted mothers, illustrating how the drug affects the fetus and explaining that crack babies are at risk for low birth weight, impaired brain growth, and malformed kidneys and genitals.
