Blackburn, Carolyn; Carpenter, Barry; Egerton, Jo
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
The range of learning difficulties associated with children and young people who have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) has been highlighted as an emerging but little understood area of Special Educational Needs. This engaging, timely and highly practical book will raise awareness about FASD and its associated difficulties across the entire education workforce. It provides a range of specialist, tried-and-tested practical teaching and learning strategies from which teachers and support staff may construct personalised learning plans for students with FASD, and will help improve outcomes for all their children. It also: (1) Explains the impact that FASD can have on the child's brain; (2) Discusses the overlapping and co-existing disorders, such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorders; (3) Shows how to support and empower teachers; and (4) Provides ready to use teaching resources and strategies that can be used directly in the classroom. Informed by the very latest research and written by leading experts in the field, "Educating Children and Young People with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders" will prove invaluable for experienced teachers and teaching assistants who are engaging in Continuing Professional Development, newly qualified and training Initial Teacher Training students.
