Our Adoption Education Program (AEP) teaches prospective adoptive parents about all aspects of adoption, including:
Types of Adoptions • Attachment • Biological vs. Adoptive Parenting • Separation & Loss • Child Development (ages/stages) • Special Placement Needs in Adopted Children • Trans-Racial/Cross Cultural Adoption • Building Resilience • Open vs. Closed Adoption • Transitioning Child to Family • Discipline • Life Books
Delivered by registered social workers, the AEP also helps prospective adoptive parents to:
Make connections with others involved in the adoption process; and
Learn the latest tips to make your adoption successful.
Prospective adoptive parents need to complete an AEP before the home study is finalized. For most families, this coincides with completing an adoption application, but for information on participating at any point in the initial stages of adoption, please feel free to contact our team.
Our next AEP sessions are:
January 28, February 3, 4, 17 & 18, 2018 - 5 weekend sessions 8:30 am-5 pm
