Trying Differently Rather Than Harder

Diane V. Malbin, MSW

This book provides 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.

The Way I Am Is Different

Helen Simpson and Brandon Orcutt

In this children’s book, a boy with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is about to embark on his third grade year. The boy describes his anxiety, fears, and discusses his struggles from an honest view point of what it is like to live with FASD in Elementary school. He shows us that the support from family, friends, and teachers certainly makes a positive difference. This book helps children understand their “different” is perfectly okay, and they are not alone.
