Children with FASD have emerged as a major new phenomenon within the education, health and social care systems of the UK, with current prevalence rates suggest that one in 100 children have FASD.With contributions from experts on the topic from around the world, this book offers a holistic insight into FASD. Its multi disciplinary approach makes it an invaluable companion to how we understand and overcome the complex social, educational and health needs associated with this growing group of children and young people.This book will establish the evidence base that would enable services to build, grow and respond on the basis of coherent and comprehensive knowledge across a range of disciplines. It recognises that families ' natural, fostered or adopted ' are at the heart of this process, and that the rich knowledge base grounded in the lived experience is crucial. It is only by working with families that our society will meet its responsibilities and obligations to individuals with FASD across their lifespan.Any educational or health professional working with children with FASD and their families will find this book a seminal and authoritative resource.
