TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v3 n2 Article 5 Nov 2006
The Center on Disease Control, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (2005) identified the prevalence of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as being 10 per 1,000. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has further explained (2005) that FASD now outranks autism and Down syndrome in prevalence. Students with FASD typically receive their instruction in general education classrooms. This article highlights instructional tips that teachers in Alaska say are helpful when teaching students with FASD. (Contains 1 table.)
