Review: Sensory Issues and FASD

Understanding the sensory issues, including sensory seeking and sensory avoiding behaviors, in students with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is paramount. FASD can lead to both heightened sensitivities and sensory-seeking tendencies, making it imperative for educators and support staff to comprehend this complex interplay. Some students may find certain sensory experiences overwhelming, leading to anxiety and meltdowns, while others may actively seek out sensory stimulation to regulate themselves. By recognizing and addressing these diverse sensory needs, we can tailor the learning environment to accommodate each student effectively.
