A companion to a January 1993 nationwide teleconference entitled "A Nation's Challenge: Educating Substance-Exposed Children" and organized by the Florida Department of Education, this booklet provides educators with information and research on effective strategies for working with children affected by alcohol and other drugs. It also provides guidelines for developing and implementing a school or community action plan to deal with this problem. The three main sections of the booklet provide: (1) profiles of eight innovative intervention programs at the school district and community level; (2) profiles of five state and national resource organizations that can provide financial and technical support to school or community programs; and (3) an annotated bibliography of articles, books, reports, teaching resources, newsletters, toll-free telephone numbers, clearinghouses, catalogues, videos, and other resources on strategies for working with children affected by alcohol and other drugs. Three appendixes contain listings of the Department of Education's Drug Free Schools state program representatives, members of the teleconference National Resource Group, and teleconference panel members.
