Conjuring a New Category of Disability from Prenatal Cocaine Exposure: Are the Infants Unique Biological or Caretaking Casualties?
Schutter, Linda S.; Brinker, Richard P.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v11 n4 p84-111 Win 1992
A review of the literature on biological and environmental effects of cocaine use suggests that the classification of infants and young children as prenatally cocaine exposed is neither descriptive nor predictive of behavior. The classification of behavior rather than labeling of the child is encouraged, as are partnerships with families of cocaine-exposed infants. (DB)
