Vincent, Lisbeth J.; And Others
This booklet examines what is known about the long-term effects of exposure in utero to alcohol and other drugs, as well as the educational implications of those effects. Research is synthesized on biological and medical risk factors, psychosocial risk factors, and the interaction of biology and environment. A section on implications for educational personnel discusses protective factors and facilitative processes to be built into the classroom. Implications for program development and administration are also discussed, listing needed services and outlining the need for transagency/transdisciplinary service delivery.
