My son , I adopted through fostercare when he was 5 has had behavioral problems but they seem to keep getting worse and he is harder to handle. He is 13 now but doesn't quite understand why people act the way they do . He doesn't understand cause and affect, for example if I do this I will have this consequence. We have a threapist and the school that works with him on behaviors also... Home life is a bit stressful. any ideas for someone like him ?Answer Question

Sounds like he has difficulty with reciprocity and many babies with FAS have this issue. If this were me I would look into a therapist who has worked extensively with FAS. You may have some difficulty depending on the area you live in finding highly qualified professionals. I do know that many good books are out there explaining solid treatment plans for families in similar situations. If you have not already they may provide some insight. But accessing resources, even with knowing what is best practice, is very difficult for most families. I am so sorry that he is having to live with these side effects of serious neurological damage. And sorry that you have to watch the son you love experience all these difficulties.
