They have been developed to provide current, useful, understandable information for parents, professionals and people with FASD, and to support collaboration among families, professionals, agencies and organizations.
The following materials support development of a common language for talking about behaviors differently, so that parents, psychologists, educators and family members are all "on the same page."

One section explores the most common behavioral symptoms by providing case examples, interventions, and improved outcomes. The neurobehavioral approach in Trying Differently Rather Than Harder is illustrated by stories of how alternative interventions lead to less frustration.
