Description
"It's a facile but short-sighted policy to act as though FAS is an issue confined to children under 12 years old, or to women. There is no logical cutoff point in the population because innate disability -- physical or mental -- interacts with social environments and shifting expectations in different ways throughout a person's lifetime. Behaviors that are tolerable though worrisome at 11 become unacceptable and criminal at 15, prosecutable at 18, thuggish at 40". -- Michael Dorris

In 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. Twenty-two experts from the fields of human services, education, and criminal justice respond by describing their solutions to this problem of a birth defect that targets the brain and has lifelong consequences.

Some of the most crippling secondary disabilities that people with FAS/FAE face include mental health problems, disrupted school experience, inappropriate sexual behavior, trouble with the law, alcohol and drug problems, difficulty caring for their children, and homelessness.

This book acknowledges the diverse and multifaceted needs of people with FAS/FAE across the lifespan. It will be valuable for parents and the many professionals working with people with FAS/FAE.
