WHAT IS FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME?

Women who drink alcohol during pregnancy can give birth to babies with fetal alcohol
spectrum disorders, sometimes known as FASDs. FASD is the umbrella term for a
range of disorders. These disorders can be mild or severe and can cause physical and
mental birth defects. Types of FASDs include:
-fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)
-partial fetal alcohol syndrome
-alcohol-related birth defects
-alcohol-related neurodevelopment disorder
-neurobehavioral disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure

FAS is a severe form of the condition. People
with FAS may have problems with their vision,
hearing, memory, attention span, and
abilities to learn and communicate. While the
defects vary from one person to another, the
damage is often permanent.
STRATEGIES TO HELP SAM SELF
REGULATE SCHOOL WORK

1) Setting Goals
-teach students to set realistic goals
-have students scaffold their goals: instead of focusing on one big (and often
overwhelming goal) have students set little goals that amount to their ultimate
goal and the end
-How can we teach students to set goals?

2)Self Reinforcement
-Although positive reinforcement from a teacher is certainly a good motivator
for students, if they learn to praise themselves (instead of looking for praise
from teachers) they will in time become much more proud of their
achievements, and will strive to continue to achieve
-How can we teach students to self-reinforce?

3)Model Self Regulation in the Way You Teach


-teach in a way that gives specific time limits and timed expectations of work.
-make it explicitly known that your intention is to teach them to eventually be
able to manage their own time in a similar way
-How might we teach in a way that models self regulation?

4)Cue Students: Students who have a hard time self regulating may need help to
develop awareness of their own emotions. Teachers can help to foster this
awareness by cueing them to identify their emotions, and when they should try to
use strategies to regulate these emotions

“Josh, I can see you are feeling upset. Perhaps you would like to get a drink of
water”- you are demonstrating to the student how to name the feeling they are
experiencing and making a suggestion as to how they might like to manage these
feelings appropriately

5) Introduce Mindfulness Exercises into your Classroom


-introduce an Ap like The Daily Calm to your daily class routine. It allows
students who may have trouble with regulating their emotions to practice
calming themselves, in a way that is comfortable and safe (everyone is
participating, so they don’t feel like they are being singled out)

6) Zones of Regulation: a systematic system that allows students to categorize


how they are feeling using different zones:
Blue Zone= Sad, sick, tired or bored
Green Zone= Neutral emotions, organized, calm, focused, happy
Yellow= frustrated, silly, excited, agitated, nervous, embarrassed
Red Zone= intense emotions that overwhelm: panic, enraged, elated
