Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FAS/FASD)
Parenting is an extraordinary job under the best of circumstances but becomes even more daunting when parents are attempting to parent children with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). This paper addresses the challenges of creating and sustaining a support network for parents of children with an FASD.
Written by Julia Brown, a parent of two children with FASD and CEO of The FASD Trust, the UK's leading charity in this field, and Dr Mary Mathers, UK leading expert on FASD.
This book mixes practical, real life strategies with medical expertise explaining the reasons behind the child's behaviour and responses.
Readable and easy to understand, this book conveys urgent information about medical and social issues surrounding 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.
n the first book of its kind, experts describe how to help people with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. A summary of recent findings and recommendations is presented by the team who conducted the largest study ever done on people of all ages with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effects.
Accessible and informative, this is a useful introduction to FASD.
With the aid of simple, illustrative diagrams, photographs and charts, it shows how you can identify FASD and also provides advice on how children, young people and adults with FASD can be best supported.
