Many children who demonstrate challenging behaviors in the classroom, alternative settings, and even the justice system come to us with the effects of fetal alcohol syndrome.

This is a powerful and thought provoking training that combines practical strategies with current research on the prenatal effects of drugs and alcohol. Focus is placed on the central nervous system effects and how that translates into challenging behavioral characteristics in children and adolescents. Key components are working effectively with these students through structure, new learning, and environmental modifications.
