FASD some basic resources

The following are some resources that parents and teachers working with children with FASD may find useful. This is not an all inclusive list, but if you read the materials you will find in these links, you will certainly acquire expertise in the topic.

  • This website address takes you to several links to fact sheets published by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration, SAMHSA, which is the number one financier of research of FASD in the USA.
  • This link takes you to publications by SAMHSA, that are comprehensive, on FASD. Everything you ever wanted to know about FASD is integrated on those publications.

  • The Society of Special Needs Adoptive Parents (SNAP), a non-profit, provincially-funded organization in British Columbia, produced the first edition of this booklet in 1994 in response to many requests from parents and professionals caring for children affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and other alcohol-related birth defects (ARBD, ARND). The first edition received an overwhelming response from the community.
    • Parenting Children Affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, A Daily Guide for Living
  • This Booklet is designed for caregivers and professionals who, in their everyday lives, encounter children and youth affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Readers should be aware that this Booklet provides strategies and suggestions for people who already have a
    base understanding of FASD. If you would like more information on FASD, please visit www.region6fasd.ca.
    • Strategies Not Solutions
  • The title of this article is a misnomer, please do not get discouraged. The article describes excellent strategies, step by step, to use with children with learning problems. Dr Donald Meichenbaum's behavioral learning strategy is included, which is a phenomenal addition.
    • Journal of Moral Education, The Improvement of Moral Development Through an Increase in Reflection. A Training Programme
