Because many adoptive families struggle with the difficult task of sorting out if behaviors and challenges are adoption related or now, we asked an expert to help! Dr. Gregory Keck discusses common challenges at each developmental stage and offers real life examples and suggestions.

Online tools like Google and Facebook have revolutionized the way we look for information and connect with one another. Your teen (or even tween) may be searching for birth relatives online. She may also be approached online by a birth relative ... or someone posing as one. This webinar will share strategies on talking to your children about searching and preparing them for possible outcomes. It will also identify safety risks and discuss how to avoid them.

Traveling, family gatherings, holiday foods and music are all special parts of celebrating the holidays. But for many children, especially those with sensory sensitivities or who may have only recently come into their adoptive home, the frenzy of the holidays can push them beyond their ability to cope. This webinar will help you understand your child's capacity to cope and help them regulate behaviors.

Join Dr. Karyn Purvis as she discusses the most recent research on the impact nutrition can have on behavior.
