"Understanding Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: A Comprehensive Guide for Pre-K to 8 Educators"
What is it?
"Understanding Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: A Comprehensive Guide for Pre-K to 8 Educators" is a resource developed by Chandra Zieff and Rochelle Schwartz-Bloom from Duke University and published in 2008. The guide provides an excellent background on the science behind how brain development in children with FASD produces learning and behavioral difficulties, as well as covering the neuropsychological and behavioral difficulties the children face as a result of the disorder and strategies to use in the classroom.
How to use it
Just like with "What Educators Need to Know About FASD", the handbook should be read by teachers as soon as the find out they will have a student with FASD in their classroom. The extensive science behind the learning and behavioral difficulties will provide the teacher with a strong base to build upon to work with children with FASD.
