Product description...

People with FASDs Can Be Successful—with Support!

Despite being one of the most common developmental disabilities in the world, there is little understanding (and even fewer services) for people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) and their families. Family members spend years looking for help and resources, only to find that most professionals do not know enough about FASD or how to support those with it. Parents and supporters of children, teens, and adults with FASDs are often perplexed by their behaviors and daily struggles. Traditional responses and approaches often make things worse. We might know that they need different types of support, but struggle with knowing how to do so.

That’s where Essential FASD Supports comes in! This book offers a reinterpretation of “challenging behaviors” and other common struggles that people with FASDs experience while living in a world that does not understand them. It helps parents and professionals think about practical supports for everyday life and long-term progress. Additionally, readers will learn what we should avoid if we want to effectively support people with FASDs. Essential FASD Supports addresses:

• Daily learning and thinking
• Emotional dysregulation and “challenging behaviors”
• Opposition
• Safe and healthy interactions

This book provides a proactive framework to support people with FASDs so they can use their strengths to make progress and thrive. It will benefit parents, caregivers, foster providers, therapists, teachers, and anyone else who supports someone with an FASD.
