Transgenerational Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND) Maternal drinking in pregnancy causes Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND) whether dysmorphic, called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), or non dysmorphic, ARND itself. These are both transgenerational developmental psychiatric disorders.The prevalence of ARND continues to be under-recognized as it is mainly presented as a faceless â€˜hidden disabilityâ€™ (masquerading as ADHD, Mood Disorder or ASD), rather than a facial dysmorphic disorder. The thrust of this book has come from 25 years of psychiatric clinical and academic work with children, adolescents and their families, all of whom are affected by prenatal alcohol exposure in Canada, USA, UK and now Ireland. This book is not an angry polemic on the evils of alcohol, but a passionately written academic treatise on 40 years of alcohol teratology and subsequent human research.
