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

This topical new book brings together a previously neglected perspective to bear on the problem of prenatal drug exposure in the US. At the heart of the book is a series of interviews with public 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 education programs in public schools. This is the first book to use teachers' experiences as a resource for understanding how prenatal drug exposure affects the development of children and how social construction of the problem influences perceptions of these children within the school environment.
