Duquette, Cheryll; Stodel, Emma J.
Exceptionality Education Canada, v15 n2 p51-75 2005
The purpose of this research was to examine the educational experiences of individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and the elements of a successful school experience. Eleven parents and seven children participated in this qualitative study. Data was collected using questionnaires and in-depth semi-structured interviews. Participants stated that the elements contributing to a successful school experience were caring teachers and appropriate programs and services. Three other elements also emerged from the data: obtaining a medical diagnosis, support from parents, and the transition to adult life. (Contains 1 table.)
