Adapting To AdoptionAbout ATAFamilies/IndividualsProfessionals/AgenciesUpcoming Events

"Touched By Adoption" is a group for adoptive parents at the Calhoun School, facilitated by Leanne, involving education and parenting strategies. 
Parents in your school or community may benefit from a supportive, confidential, empathic, and knowledgeable place to bring questions/concerns, and share in your families' achievements and challenges. 
Are you a member of an adoptive, foster, or birth family
a parent, an adopted person, or someone  interested 
in adoption? 

Have you made use of reproductive technologies and are wondering how to talk about it with your kids?

Frustrated by the lack of adequate understanding of adoption issues?  

Wondering how to answer your child's questions about how your family was formed or her origins?  



Has your child's teacher reported that s/he acts out in school or may have ADHD?  

Need a Home-Study?
ATA will put you at ease throughout the process and help turn it into an opportunity for learning about the needs of adoptees, and how your strengths can benefit children placed in your home.
Coming to terms with how adoption may have influenced your  relationships, both personally and  professionally? 

 Considering search and reunion, either for yourself or  a family  member?

 Perhaps​ you recently contacted or were contacted by a birth-  relative  and need help navigating your way through all the  feelings and  questions.

 Or you may have discovered difficult information about your own  or your child's origins, and don't know what to do with it.

 You may be a clinician treating a triad-member and want to  ensure  you provide optimal treatment, which requires knowing  how and what  to assess for in adoption dynamics.
