It depends on his/her interests. I taught a girl who had severely limited cognitive ability (2nd grade reading level in the 8th grade) who was on the Cheerleading team and did theater. Mind you, she didn't excel at either, but she chose them and she got a lot of enjoyment out of the activities. Give the child a choice. Ask what they like. I also knew a girl who likes to color and do puzzles. or sing songs and dance

Fetal Alcohol Syndrom can affect the growth and weight of the child. It can damage the brain causing mental retardation, poor reasoning skills, and mental health problems.
A person with mental retardation has a low IQ and difficulty with tasks associated with daily living. A person with a learning disability may have an average or above average IQ but has difficulty in a specific area. For example, a very smart child may have trouble reading. This child is not mentally retarded but rather may have a learning disability.
