Project Main Details

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder Primer 
The purpose of the recording is to narrate an on-line educational program for the Centers for Disease Control about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). The recordings will narrate animated videos produced to provide training about FAS. This is the first of a series. Subsequent modules are being developed now and we would want to use the same narrator for those. These trainings will be offered no-cost to various health care professionals, including: Pediatricians, Social Workers, Nurses, Health Care clinic workers, etc.

The project includes sections that are excerpted stories from FASD birth mothers with personal experience. These sections should be told as stories.

This program has a professional target audience. The voice should be a mature female. While the subject matter is serious, the narration does not need to be somber, but rather a professional yet caring tone.

Currently the first module is approximately 18 pages (7,000 words) of narration. Future modules will not exceed this length, or be shorter. We will need finished pieces ready for use.

Script Details

(Here is an example of one of the stories)
Melissa is a mother whose child has an FASD. Melissa drank alcohol at the beginning of her pregnancy; before she found out she was pregnant. Her doctor told her it was okay to continue to drink a glass of wine with dinner during her pregnancy. She was told it would also help her relax and improve her circulation. Besides that one discussion, there wasn’t any further conversation about Melissa’s drinking.

When Melissa’s son was born, he appeared normal. But as he got older, Melissa realized things just weren’t quite right. He would become agitated when wearing certain clothing. He acted out in school – turning over chairs several times and once throwing his shoes at his teacher. In one instance, he tried to jump out of his mother’s car as they were leaving a friend’s house. When he was diagnosed with an FASD, Melissa felt relieved to finally learn what was going on with her son, mixed with feelings of guilt and shame.

Melissa shares her story to educate other mothers about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy.

(here is an excerpt from the training)
Specific criteria must be met for a diagnosis of each FASD. These may include certain facial features, evidence of growth delays, and/or central nervous system abnormalities. The majority of individuals exposed to alcohol in utero will not have the facial features or growth problems required for a diagnosis of FAS; many of these individuals will be diagnosed with another condition on the spectrum. Unlike FAS, the characteristics associated with other disorders along the spectrum may be more subtle and may not be recognized until the child is older, or even into adulthood.

A person with an FASD may exhibit poor coordination, poor memory, communication difficulties, poor judgment and executive functioning skills (such as problems with planning and organization, self-monitoring, and inhibition), vision or hearing problems, and difficulty with attention, among other challenges
