Back to School Resources Round UpPosted Aug 18, 2020
By: Kristen Hamilton, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Communication
From preschool to college, this school year is anything but normal for students and their parents. The challenges of virtual learning, disruption to established routines, and reduced services can be especially challenging for adoptive families. We've complied a list of resources to encourage and equip adoptive parents as you begin a new school year in these difficult times.
Thanks to NCFA Resource Organization members Creating A Family and The Center for Adoption Support and Education, our Research Partner QIC-AG, our friends at The Adoption Connection, and
the Child Mind Institute for the great resources you provide to the adoption community!
