Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: A Guide for Families and Communities
Readable and easy to understand, this book conveys urgent information about medical and social issues surrounding fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). Compassionately written by the expert psychologist who conducted some of the earliest examinations of children with FAS more than 20 years ago, this guidebook presents an overview of FAS and explains how to identify the disorder, how to work with children (and adults) who have it, how to talk to parents about it, and how to prevent its occurrence through sensitive education of prospective mothers and society at large.
Photographs and case studies lend personal perspective while revealing the physical and behavioral manifestations of FAS, particularly in children. For parents, families, educators, pediatricians, psychologists, adoption workers, lawyers, judges, social workers, nurses, and child care providers, this timely work speaks to everyone, promoting understanding and awareness of the challenges faced by the children who have this entirely preventable disability.
