The Open Arms Adoption Network presents: The Language of Adoption – March 14th from 8 AM- 5 PM. Venue: Corporate Suites Midtown 825 Third Avenue, 2nd Floor New York, NY 10022
Learning to speak a new language is a skill that takes time and practice. When forming our family through adoption, the words we use to talk about it matter. Please join us as we explore ways to improve our fluency in speaking about adoption with acquaintances, child care providers, friends, family, and most importantly, with our children.
This workshop is designed for families at all stage in their adoption, pre or post placement. Topics covered will include the use of accurate and positive terms, communication with birth families, and techniques on how to initiate developmentally appropriate discussions with children.
Facilitator: Stefani Moon, Open Arms
