I learned that people with FASD have a developmental age that is younger then their cronical age. Although I already had a sense of this before I took this class, it was great to actually see it in a perspective as mentioned in the book. I did not think that an eighteen year old FASD child, would actually be going on to the developmental stage of a 10 year old. That gave me an understanding on how individuals are at an older age, then at a younger age. I've always just thought of younger people with FASD, and not older ones.
I also learned that when an FASD student is maybe caught stealing, that they might not understand the concept of ownership over time and space. Or that they think "finders keepers". I I would have thought although they have problems understanding things that they would understand the concept of ownership. For example, the car my parents drive, it belongs to my parents, etc.
