How is Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome Diagnosed?

Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome is diagnosed by a team of medical professionals. A diagnosis of Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome can be made during a prenatal test (before birth). When a mother has been taking anti-epileptic drugs, a prenatal test can be carried out to identify if the baby has any major defects including Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome. If the pre-natal scan shows no physical defects of the foetus then it will be hard to determine whether the foetus has been affected by the anti-epileptic drugs, therefore a diagnosis will be made on examination, after birth.

As Fetal Anti-Convulsant syndrome causes a number of problems e.g. learning difficulties and speech and language difficulties, a team of professionals will be involved in identifying any difficulties a child with Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome may have.

Professionals involved in identifying additional difficulties include:

  • Speech and Language Therapists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Other medical professionals
  • Educational staff
