Sammanfattning

Few studies focus on psychosocial functioning in adults with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). A previous follow-up study of Swedish children with FAS showed that they had severe problems with social relationships and education, problems that remained throughout childhood. The aim of this register study is to further investigate the past and present social and psychosocial demographics of these children who now are adults (n = 79, mean age 29 [18-49 years], 37 % women and 63 % men). A swedish longitudinal integrated database for health insurance and labour market studies (LISA by Swedish acronym) is used for this purpose. Examples of data that will be utilized from the database LISA are employment, income (e.g. parental leave, unemployment, labour market activity, rehabilitation, early retirement, social assistance), place of residence (county, municipality, parish and property) and highest level of education. Obtained data will be compared to a gender and age matched comparison group, also retreived from the database LISA. Preliminary results show that almost 30 % of the adults with FAS had been subjected to the Swedish enforcement authority and the Social services. Moreover, about 70 % of the individuals had been regularly in contact with the Swedish public employment services. The results indicate that FAS have a major impact on the adult daily life, especially on social and psychosocial demographics.
