Prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) can be associated with significant difficulties in self‐regulatory abilities. As such, interventions have been developed that focus on improving varying aspects of self‐regulation for this population. The application of a multilevel theoretical framework that describes the development of self‐regulation during early childhood could further advance the field. First, this framework could assist in elucidating mechanisms in the trajectories of early adjustment problems in this population and, second, informing the development of more precise assessment and interventions for those affected by PAE.
