According to researchers'' information and follow-up done, this patient is considered as the first case of FAS in Iran. Prosodic characteristics of the patient''s speech have been compared with speech features of ordinary speakers of Persian language. Being in direction of previously reported research findings, the obtained results show that there are main deviations in prosodic characteristics of the patient''s speech which are related to the speech rate, stress, and juncture.
