Edmonds, Kelly; Crichton, Susan
International Journal of Special Education, v23 n1 p54-73 2008
This study examines a unique educational program designed for youth with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder [FASD] in Alberta, Canada. Care was taken to include the participants' voice in this case study resulting in key insights and strategies for working with youth and/or students struggling with FASD. Using observation notes, survey and interview responses, and literature reviews, participants' perceptions were used as a lens to describe characteristics, experiences and learning needs of this population. Studying their ability and how these participants struggled unfolded specific needs in the program. Additionally, in exploring the impact of the program on the participants' learning, growth and progress, key strategies for teaching and learning were revealed. The appendix offers sample lesson plans and resources as used in this educational program. As a whole, this qualitative study offers those working in the field of FASD and learning disabilities insights and strategies from the perspective and feedback of the participants.
