For any parent or professional who needs to work with children with fetal alcohol syndrome/effects (FASE/E), this important guide offers practical advice and solid information on dealing with FASE/E’s lifelong effects on behavior and learning.
As the adoptive mother of a child with FASD I have read many books on this subject looking for guidance. This is the best book I have found. First it describes the behaviors my daughter has and then gives us clearly explained ways to help us learn to manage them as well as train our daughter how to manage them. There is help for every stage of their childhood as well as help for the classroom teacher. It doesn’t sugar coat the issues and say it will be easy but gives you practical ways to manage these difficult issues. I was relieved to learn my stress and exhaustion are typical for mom’s who deal with this and that there is hope. This book has been an answer to my prayers!
