Adoption Education and Parent Training
 

Affordable, Convenient, and Easily Accessible Parent Training and Adoption Education

At Adoptions Together, we understand that families have many competing demands, and it is not always practical or feasible to attend a seminar in a classroom setting. In order to be useful and effective, parents must be able to access information and support when they need it most. We strive to make parent training affordable, convenient, and easily accessible by offering in person, online, and on-demand options for parent training and adoption education.

Parent Training in the Classroom

While many seminars can be taught online, we recognize that some families prefer the opportunity to interact face to face, and there is some subject matter that can be better addressed in person. Adoptions Together offers many in-person seminars throughout the year that provide a solid foundation and introduction to issues related to international and domestic adoption. These parent training courses are typically held in our Virginia and Maryland offices and are continuously listed on our Events Calendar.

Parent Training On Demand Webinars

For those who are unable to attend in-person classes, Adoptions Together offers a comprehensive resource library of on-demand webinars that parents can access at any time, from any location.  This library allows busy parents to enhance their knowledge and complete training requirements at their convenience.
