Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Michael Dorris, an author and educator, writes poignantly in his book, The Broken Cord, about his adopted son's struggle with life as a victim of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Dorris is one of thousands of parents who have experienced the emotional pain, the fears, and the frustrations of raising a child affected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. At the time Dorris wrote The Broken Cord, it was generally accepted by medical, psychological, and educational experts that efforts to change the behaviors or build independent living skills in children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome were an exercise in futility.
