FASD & the Criminal Justice system

This Australian produced video raises some important issues related to the management of people with FASD in the criminal justice system of any Country.

As an Educationalist, the issues raised underscore for me the need for high quality Education for children and young people with FASD, to prevent some of the tragic admissions to the criminal justice system. Many go on to become ‘revolving door prisoners’ with no quality of life.

One day Society will wake up to this ticking time-bomb.

Improving Learning Outcomes for children and young people with FASD
