Adoption Resources for Educators
The Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.), a nonprofit adoptive family support center, provides a variety of adoption-related information, programs, and resources for families, professionals, and educators, including a monthly e-newsletter. Two articles in C.A.S.E.'s August 2007 newsletter address the role of adoption in the academic setting.
In the first article,"When Friends and Teachers Acknowledge Adoption as a Positive Way to Build Families," Judith Madden provides information for adoptive parents and educators on how to best approach adoption topics in school. S.A.F.E. at School: A Manual for Teachers and Counselors is mentioned as a resource for educators that provides strategies for creating a positive and supportive environment for adoptive families.
"Back to School with Confidence," written by adoptive parent Margie Persheid, discusses the challenges many adopted children face at school and what parents can do to make the learning environment a supportive one.
