Intervention Strategies for School Age Children.
D'Entremont, Denise Morel
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is a relatively new diagnostic label. As more physicians become familiar with the diagnosis of this syndrome, schools will begin to see children with the label FAS and Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE). Children with FAS often do not pick up skills from their environment as easily as some of their peers. They often need to be specifically taught behaviors that other children seem to pick up naturally. These youngsters need to learn to turn Elementary Secondary Education the urge to get up. The child also needs to learn how to match body motions to the requirements of the situation. These youngsters need to be given the opportunity to meet success and, hopefully, with these successes a positive self-image will develop. The counselor may be asked to fill a number of roles in adjusting the environment so successes are possible. Statistics show that the number of FAS and FAE children is growing. Society needs to work on eliminating this preventable birth defect, yet, must be prepared to meet the challenge of helping those affected to reach their potential and to have happy, productive school experiences.
