   schema:description "In 1973, psychologist Ann Streissguth was shocked by the lack of scientific documentation on the impact of alcohol on the unborn child. She sought to fill that void by dedicating her professional career to the study of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and fetal alcohol effects (FAE). In this compassionate volume, Dr. Streissguth draws on her life's work, writing with wisdom and authority on essential issues surrounding these alcohol-related problems. Using compelling case studies, photos, illustrations, and validated empirical research, the author highlights the cultural, racial, and economic diversity of FAS. A completely preventable disability, FAS still changes the life course of thousands of babies each year. This book will help physicians, psychologists, social workers, educators, advocates, and families of children and adults with FAS work toward an educated community, a supportive network of legislation and programs, and better futures for people living and growing with FAS."@en ;
