Back-to-School: “What Teachers Should Know About Adoption”

Second only to their family network, the people that influence children’s development the most include their teachers and the school staff they interact with.

That makes it all the more essential that educators understand how adoption, trauma, and change can affect children and their behavior, says the National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption and Guardianship Support and Preservation. 

The QIC-AG, which develops adoption-focused support resources for educators and pediatric health care providers, has created this resource for educators and school staff.

Shared by WACAP’s social services staff,  this resource is helpful for teachers and can also support you in your conversations with school staff, as your child heads back to school, and beyond.
