Presenter:

  • Roxana Vernescu, PhD, Senior Manager, NIOC; Adjunct Professor, Department of Psychology, Memorial University, Newfoundland

Attention and executive functioning difficulties are the most commonly observed behaviours in children with FASDs, from basic sustained attention to more complex cognitive processes. Primary deficits in cognitive processing place children at much greater risk of developing secondary disabilities of an academic, behavioural, or interpersonal nature. Research for specific cognitive processes is promising and may help prevent secondary disabilities. Intervention research for training attention and more complex executive functioning in children with FASDs will be reviewed.
