Edmonton and area Fetal Alcohol Network. (13 March 2019) KnowFASD: Impulsivity and Risky Behaviour
KnowFASD (Feb 5 2019) Intelligence Quotient (IQ) Edmonton and area Fetal Alcohol Network Society “Although many people with FASD have an IQ within the “normal” range, they often are not able to function within the “normal” range for their age. That is, they may have average IQ, but below average adaptive function. With IQ often playing a large part in school assessment, children who have an average IQ might not end up receiving or qualifying for the services that they need for their difficulties in other areas. IQ may also be an important factor when patients apply for services and financial assistance are submitted in adulthood.”
