Reviews

'This excellent publication not only presents a practical approach aimed at raising awareness of FASD but also provides proven teaching and learning strategies for educationalists and other professionals. It addresses overlapping and co-existing disorders, such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorder and I particularly welcome this new resource as a valuable addition to the increasing body of contemporary knowledge in the area of FASD.' - Sue Miers, Chair, NOFASARD, Australia

'With a target audience of teachers, teaching assistants and student teachers, this volume provides a clear introduction to FASD in the context of recent research by the authors and their associates....this is a useful, timely book, written in a clear and engaging manner. I will be placing it on the reading lists of student teachers and practitioners on `Continuing Professional Development' courses. If a good book is one that makes us think and re-examine our own perspectives, as well as those of others, then this is an excellent book.' - Teresa Lehane, Senior Lecturer and writer for the European Journal of Special Needs Education
