Webinar: “Adoption at School – Educating Teachers, Administrators & Parents”
Adoption can impact both the dynamics of a classroom and how a child learns. At school, our children may be asked questions or even teased about their adoptive status, and assignments such as the family tree and â€œAll About Meâ€ posters can put them on the spot.
Brooke Randolph, LMHC, will discuss how parents can educate teachers and administrators to avoid unnecessary complications, and answer questions including: Should I tell my childâ€™s teacher that he was adopted? Give a presentation in the classroom? My daughter is supposed to send in a baby picture, but we donâ€™t have oneâ€”what should we do? My son wants to include his birth family in his family tree projectâ€”should we ask the teacher about this, and how can we do it? My child said a classmateâ€™s been teasing her about looking different from her parentsâ€”how should we respond?
The Expert Q&A Webinar with Brooke Randolph, LMHC: Adoption at School will take place on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 from 1pm to 2pm ET (12pm-1pm CT; 11am-12pm MT; 10am-11am PT).
