For any parent or professional who needs to work with children with fetal alcohol syndrome/fetal alcohol effects (FAS/FAE), this important guide offers practical advice and solid information for dealing with its lifelong effects on behavior and learning. It covers the historical, medical, and social aspects of FAS/FAE, and details the common behavioral characteristics associated with the condition. Taking a developmental approach, the guide offers specific behavioral management techniques to be used with children with FAS/FAE from infancy through late adolescence. The author's own case studies are used to clarify psychological concepts and personalize FAS/FAE for the novice.
