ABSTRACT
Jack, a 10-year-old fourth-grade student with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, lives with his adoptive parents, who began as foster parents when he was 3 years old. Jack is a talkative, active, and creative boy who struggles with academics, making friends, and anger management. It is difficult for him to understand the consequences of his behavior, so his decision making doesn't always result in positive outcomes. After negative peer interactions, Jack's teacher uses direct teaching of social skills, modeling, and guided practice. However, Jack tends to repeat the same negative decisions, and therefore has few friends. Jack also has a difficult time understanding social cues and interpreting others' communication, wants, or needs.
