The question has been misunderstood. The parents of the children with Autisim spectrum disorders, learning disabilities and ADHD did not drink during these pregnancies.

I should have been clear that the instances of alcoholism all developed in family members of previous generations, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great grandparents, not in the parents of these children.

The family history of depression and alcoholism would evidence in males in later adulthood after the child bearing years.

These are not cases of fetal alcohol syndrome. We are witnessing a generation of children with a range of developmental difficulties. Could there be a genetic link? Could the genetic disposition for alcoholism in mature adults be a method of self-medication to cope with milder or undiscovered learning and social disabilities?
