Prenatal Substance Exposure

While tragic, early exposure to substances is not a one-size fits all experience. Every child has a unique prenatal history and story. Substance exposure does not mean that a child cannot grow happily and healthily. However, it does likely mean that a child will need extra patience, behavioral supports, and compassion around potential learning differences or sensory needs that change over time. As with all children, building and maintaining strong, nurturing caregiver relationships is vital to their success. Please also reference our Sensory Supports (coming soon!) and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders pages for more resources.
