FASD

http://nofasaa1.miniserver.com/~martin/PDF/Strategies_not_solutions.pdf

Although FASD stands for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome the link to “Strategies not Solution” is a handbook with a wealth of information to rethink reasons behind behaviours and strategies to overcome the challenges presented by children who learn differently to the majority of the population. There is a wealth of information on such things as impulse control, calming techniques, sensory dysfunction eating/sleeping/relationships and sexuality to name just a few.

It is well worth spending the time to read as some of these could prove useful both at home and in school. – Please let us know if you try something that works!!
