Drug Affected Babies: A Bibliography.
Portland Public Schools, OR. Dept. of Research, Evaluation, and Testing.
This 42-item annotated bibliography, represents a comprehensive effort to gather information on the educational problems of infant children of substance-abusing parents. Extensive searches were conducted in databases in the fields of education, medicine, social sciences, and the humanities. In particular, studies on the problems of "crack babies" are only beginning to appear in the literature. "Crack" is having an impact on the educational world that is almost beyond comprehension, and its duration and gravity are not yet fully known. Early studies examine the severity, permanence, and nature of the problem. Of special note among the sources cited are the papers of the National Association for Perinatal Addiction Research and Education (NAPARE), which must be viewed at the Portland School District professional library due to copyright restrictions or may be ordered from the publisher. Copies of all materials, except the NAPARE papers, are available from the professional library and an order form is appended. (FMW)
