Students Like Me: A pathbreaking video guide for educators teaching children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Over the past few years, practical research has been revealing more about the nature of learning challenges faced by children with alcohol-related birth defects. As a result, strategies are emerging to help children in both mainstream and special education classrooms.

Students Like Me gives elementary and special educators a clear understanding of what Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is, how it affects childrens learning and behavior, and what can be done to modify classroom environments and teaching methods to allow children with FAS to learn.

This program was produced with a Small Business Innovative Research grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). Includes:

  • How to recognize a child with FAS
  • How to modify the class; environment and adjust teaching methods
  • How to communicate clearly and plan transitions and unstructured time in the classroom
