    Follow-up: Discuss the child's feelings with her and ways she can learn to accept and manage them.
    Another technique that helps with understanding how the child with FAS/E feels is to draw the outline of a body (like a gingerbread man). Then have her choose four marking pens of different colours. Assign a colour to four feelings: happy, angry, sad, scared. Then instruct her to fill in the body with the different colours so that you will know 'how much of her' is happy, sad. angry and afraid.
    In Conclusion
    "The child who has been prenatally exposed to alcohol has the right to honest, diagnostic information that has not been corrupted by ego, social stigma or ignorance by our health professionals. Individuals with FASD and their families have the right to specifically targeted integrated support services implemented by professionals who have a sound understanding of the complex needs of children/adolescents and adults who have this (lifelong) disability."
    -The National Organisation for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Related Disorders Inc.
