Adopting a Toddler: Easing the Transition and Connecting with Your Child
Adopting a toddler comes with a unique set of joys and challenges. The focus of this training is to address potential issues related to toddler adoption. You will be provided with tools to ease your child's transition and suggestions on how to create a strong bond and attachment within your new family. The training includes tools for communicating with toddlers that do not yet understand English, working towards connection in the first days and weeks of placement, and guidance to help address common challenges of children who have experienced unstable environments. This training is appropriate for domestic and international adoption as the bulk of the information focuses on connection and bonding with your child.

Understanding Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Webinar
Children who have been exposed to alcohol before birth often experience social, emotional, and cognitive limitations that impact every aspect of their life as they grow, and can significantly influence the life of their family. However, with early identification, diagnosis, and appropriate intervention, children who have been prenatally exposed to alcohol can increase their potential to lead healthy, productive lives. This seminar will help parents to better understand the physical and developmental impact of prenatal alcohol exposure so that they can effectively guide and support their child. Participants will learn effective ways to discipline and create a supportive home environment, as well as practical strategies for helping their child reach his/her full potential.
