Developing inclusive practice for young children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders : a framework of knowledge and understanding for the early childhood workforce
Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) have emerged as a major phenomenon within the education and health care systems.
Prenatal exposure to alcohol is known to result in a range of birth anomalies for infants and children.
Children with FASD experience a range of developmental delays, which limit their participation and progress in a range of educational and social settings.
Written by one of the UK's top experts in the field, this practical and informative resource explores the complex and compounding socio-cultural, historical and political factors surrounding maternal drug and alcohol use, and the implications this has for young children's learning and development across the childhood workforce.
The book provides a framework of knowledge and understanding as a tool to develop inclusive practice. Developing Inclusive Practice for Young Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is an essential read for all early childhood professionals and practitioners.
It offers a range of pedagogical strategies to improve children's long-term developmental trajectory, whilst supporting children and families in a sensitive, respectful manner.
