FASD: Drawing Hope (2011)

Living with FASD – Drawing Hope is a collection of five comics, based on stories told by members of the Whitecrow Village community. The stories are about struggling in school, the importance of friendships and receiving support from friends and family. Developed by The Healthy Aboriginal Network

5 DVD Set and Book: FASD Relationships  What I Have Learned About Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (2011)

Rod Densmore, M.D.,  offers a unique perspective on FASD-related issues as both a medical practitioner and a parent of a young adult with FASD.  With the intention of adding a practical, well-referenced, accessible, engaging and inexpensive teaching tool to existing resources, Densmore has successfully compiled research findings on a large variety of topics relevant to FASD and translated them into user-friendly language.  He addresses the complexity of these issues through the expertise of a medical professional, yet with the sensitivity and passion that comes from parenting a person with FASD.  FASD Relationships encompasses a book and five DVD set, with each chapter of the book forming a series of modules about FASD.

Little Heroes #1: FASD (Ira Chasnoff, MD)

Little Heroes #1: FASD is designed to help parents explain Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (previously known as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effects) to their children.  The stories are all true, based on children that have been seen at our partner clinic in Chicago called Children’s Research Triangle.  The Little Heroes series is meant to guide you, through story and pictures, to help alcohol-affected children understand why they behave the way they do.  The book can also be used to help siblings, teachers, and other caretakers understand the behaviors exhibited by alcohol-affected children, so that they, too, can participate in the healing process for the child.
