PS - have you taken in a copy of their teachers leaflet? It is called,"FASD - A Guide for Teachers."


Copy now sent in there reply I will copy it and put in his file, gave it me back and said they have enough info and didnt want any more, if they have the info on fasd why dont they implement strateiies mentioned on teachers leaflet and then perhaps there wouldnt be so many "problems" "issues" to deal with.
