Barry Carpenter and Jo Egerton provide an introduction to the impact of Prematurity on Learning
This recent TV programme from Australia helpfully summarises the current debate in the developed world around FASD. The contribution of Professor Elizabeth Elliott is particularly important, alongside the stories from Families. Those wishing to read more of Elizabeth’s work will find two chapters by her on the new Interdisciplinary FASD text mentioned on this website.
With contributions from leading academics, families and professionals from a range of disciplines around the world, this book offers an invalua- ble and cutting-edge contribution to how we understand and address the complex social, educational and health needs associated with this grow- ing group of children and young people. The multidisciplinary and family perspectives and insights on FASDs create a rich knowledge base ground- ed in lived experience.
