The National Adoption Center expands adoption opportunities for children throughout the United States, particularly children with special needs and from minority cultures.
Training Specific: Through the Learning Center, adoptive parents and prospective adopters can take an online parenting course, The Adoption Roadmap, to expand and enrich their understanding of adoption. The course focuses on parenting skills, especially those needed to raise children with special needs, advocacy strategies to help a family identify and secure services for its child, and an appreciation of adoption as a distinct form of family building. The Learning Center is funded by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
