This is a fantastic book, not too big and really easy to read. When I first started looking for publications on this subject I could only get imports from America that were quite difficult to read because of the nature of the content; and the material was complex and written for a wider audience. Thanks to Amazon within only a few months when I searched again, there were lots of books UK sourced including this one, although credit has to be given to the American doctors, one in particular who has done most of the research for this condition and I am thankful to her for this, she is referenced in the book.
The book covers all of the general information you need to know about the condition, it reassures you that while it doesn't always feel like it your doing a great job. It also offers strategies for managing difficult situations which can be reassuring and also offers things you may not have tried. I bought 2 books and 1 download for my kindle, my son who is the sole carer for two affected children and one for their school teachers. While it is a book for parents so few people know about this condition particularly in schools mainly because unless a parent has been brave enough to identify the challenges their child has and seek a diagnosis it goes without recognition making it difficult for teachers to recognise, understand or respond to a child with FASD. This book makes it clear for them, what works and what doesn't work which is really important for the child in their care. I can't recommend this book highly enough, thanks to the authors for getting so much into such a small space and pitching it just right, well done.
