Fetal Alcohol Syndrome:
A Guide for Families and Communities
Ann Pytkowicz Streissguth
In this book for parents and professionals who work to help children with fetal alcohol syndrome and effects (FAS/FAE), Streissguth (psychiatry and behavioral science, U. of Washington) offers an overview of the condition, and discusses the diagnostic process, research conducted since the syndrome was first recognized in 1973, and strategies for prevention. Her suggestions for helping those with FAS/FAE focus on needs across the life-span and on the advocacy model for helping.
