Adoptive parents and professionals and Adoptive Council of Canada (ACC) urgently need your help:
This survey follows up on a new study on parenting adopted children with certain special needs (including FASD). In this collaborator on a project, led by Dr. Alice Home (University of Ottawa), participants (parents, social workers, and associations) identified challenges, supports and unmet needs then community workshops suggested ways forward. While special needs include various important situations, Dr. Home’s study focused on parenting adopted children, aged 1-12, with a disability, medical condition, emotional/behavioural disorder &/or prenatal substance exposure. Some also have a difficult past history.
