Perceptual and cognitive abilities are present, but they are primitive and impossible to distinguish from one another. in utero—The period when a fetus is developing in the mother’s uterus.

Children with FAS display a variety of abnormalities, including stunted growth, mental retardation, facial irregularities, heart defects, and behavior and learning problems. The incidence of fetal death is also greater. How much alcohol it takes to damage the fetus has not been determined; as little as an ounce or less per day (an amount once considered “safe”) may affect the unborn baby.

This is a period when the child is totally dependent on body movements and nonword sounds such as crying and laughing to convey needs and feelings.

Words and grammatical rules are acquired as children gain skill in conveying their thoughts and ideas through language.
