Trying Differently Rather Than Harder
This book will change your life and your parenting strategies forever.
A readable, narrative discussion of the neurobehavioral approach for working effectively with children, adolescents and adults with FASD. After a brief review of the diagnosis, the focus is on understanding behaviors differently – primary and secondary learning, and behavioral characteristics. 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.
Once you see that the child has brain damage and that his or her behavior is actually a symptom of that damage, you will respond accordingly. Less frustration, more successes, and a way of parenting and teaching that helps children with FASD succeed. A total game changer!
