Jeff thought he knew all about FASD until he started parenting a teenager with it! Jeff and his partner, Tara had been front line staff for many years and both felt they had the tools and experience to successfully parent a special needs teen and still be able to manage their home, relationship, friends and day-to-day life. They were wrong. Through a ton of mishaps, wrong turns, failed attempts and the occasional win, Jeff and Tara were able to keep their heads above water until eventually discovering a few key principles that changed their lives. Making Sense of the Madness: An FASD Survival Guide will provide readers with key principles and 'lightbulb moments' of discovery that will make positive changes in the way they understand, interpret and support individuals affected by an FASD. - BOOK JACKET
