FAS in the news

Well, how about that? Fetal Alcohol Syndrome made the Yahoo! Health News KidsHealth listings today, right there between "Heart Murmurs and Your Child" and "Common Childhood Orthopedic Conditions." The article's not a bad overview, and it's nice to see it get front-page play, if only for a day. Another interesting fetal-alcohol-related page to check out is this quiz to give you a feel for what it's like to have FASD. Sure rings true today, when my son came home with not one but two notes complaining about his behavior -- behavior pretty much exactly like that described in the aforementioned quiz. Aren't special educators supposed to know how to deal with this stuff?
