Description - Educating Drug-exposed Children by Janet Y. Thomas

Educating Drug-Exposed Children brings a hitherto neglected perspective to bear upon the major problem of prenatal drug-exposure in the USA. At the heart of the book is a series of interviews with schoolteachers concerning the challenges entailed in educating children from substance-abuse backgrounds. It covers their learning and behavioural problems, learning styles and effective instructional strategies, and addresses questions of policy such as the need for special educational programmes in schools. Features include an overview of the crack-baby epidemic, grounding it within its social context; a comprehensive review of research and literature on the subject; and a survey of the nature and origins of those existing policies which seek to address the crisis. It concludes with policy recommendations for the successful integration of drug-exposed infants into mainstream education and the creation of effective early intervention programmes.
