Family Support - Post-Adoption - group and therapy
ADOPTION SUPPORT Creating a family through adoption comes with joys and challenges just like any family. When those challenges arise it can be helpful to get support from a professional who understands how your childs\' adoption story, along with other factors may impact his/her relationships, behavior and overall development. We can assist with the following: * Preparing for the arrival of your new child and want to discuss ideas on how to support an optimal transition? * Looking for tips on how to promote a healthy parent-child attachment *Interested in positive strategies to decrease/eliminate challenging behaviors by understanding what your child is communicating by using this behavior? *Looking for tools to help your child focus in school, initiate and complete assignments, and manage materials? *Looking for support on how to help your child have positive and meaningful relationships with peers?(Keywords: Adoption, Post-Adoption)
