"Filled with compelling real-life case studies, this volume covers physical effects of drugs and alcohol on unborn children; characteristics and needs of children and families exposed to substance abuse; environmental factors and their impact on educational achievement; effective teaching strategies to address the needs of children exposed to drug and alcohol abuse; and comprehensive service delivery systems based on multiagency collaboration." "Espousing the belief that children and families affected by substance abuse can achieve healthy growth with effective intervention, Children, Families, and Substance Abuse is essential for educators, child development specialists, and psychologists."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
