Children on the autism spectrum can often be misunderstood by their surrounding community. Often, the intersectionality of loss and grief present in adoption, coupled with autism, can present unique challenges to adoptive parents and the professionals that work with them. In this live webinar training, adoption professionals will learn about available resources and techniques to help communicate with children on the autism spectrum about how and why they joined the family, who their birth family members are, and other questions related to their adoption.
This webinar will provide an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), discussion about the differences in ASD presentation, and practical resources and parenting strategies for families. Attention will be given to adoptees with autism, as well as how a diagnosis may impact relationships with siblings, birth families, and adoptive parents. We will also highlight the intersectionality of ASD with other issues connected to adoption, such as grief, maintaining relationships, and understanding the adoption story.
