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.
