We provide intensive training in effective teaching and socialization techniques for these difficult children.
This website is intended to share information on children affected by prenatal exposure to cocaine, crack, methamphetamines, alcohol and other drugs. Articles, information on training, curricula, personal experiences, and research results will be posted here. Products and services are available to help schools, parents, social service agencies and health professionals deal effectively with drug-affected children. Your comments and additions are very welcome.
Our one- and two-day professional training sessions for teachers provide participants with knowledge and information about the origins of behavioral, learning, and social-emotional problems of affected children, and teaches intensive classroom interventions, including age-appropriate and subject-specific techniques.
The training sessions have been very effective in preparing teachers and community members to work appropriately with drug affected children. More information on training—including how to schedule a training and consultation session in your county/parish or school district—is available by clicking on the Services tab above. A sample of comments about the training also appears on the Services page.
