What is Ready, Set, Go: San Diego?
Ready, Set, Go: San Diego is a study that aims to understand how a child’s learning and behavior may be affected by things that happened before birth, including what kinds of foods were eaten and how much alcohol was drank. This information will be used to get an accurate count of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) in the United States and improve early identification and treatment of children who may have difficulties with learning and behavior.
This study will work with about 4,000 first grade children in the city of San Diego over the course of two years. We will include children who may have been exposed to alcohol during pregnancy and those who have not.
