Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) have emerged as a major phenomenon within the education and health care systems. Prenatal exposure to alcohol is known to result in a range of birth anomalies for infants and children. Children with FASD experience a range of developmental delays, which limit their participation and progress in a range of educational and social settings.

Written by one of the UK’s top experts in the field, this practical and informative resource explores the complex and compounding socio-cultural, historical and political factors surrounding maternal drug and alcohol use, and the implications this has for young children’s learning and development across the childhood workforce. The book provides a framework of knowledge and understanding as a tool to develop inclusive practice.

Developing Inclusive Practice for Young Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is an essential read for all early childhood professionals and practitioners. It offers a range of pedagogical strategies to improve children’s long-term developmental trajectory, whilst supporting children and families in a sensitive, respectful manner.
