ACO Launches New Education Series

Date: August 3, 2018 Author: ACO Administrator Categories: AdoptOntario | Special Needs | Webinars


The Adoption Council of Ontario is excited to announce that we are launching a pilot for a new initiative in the fall: Online Adoption Education Webcasts. This initiative is a result of the overwhelming encouragement of families and professionals for ACO to provide more training in more ways! The online education series will make it easier than ever for families and professionals to access educational webcasts through the ACO website 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, all from the comfort of your home!
Education has been a major emphasis at the ACO since its inception more than 30 years ago and continues to be an integral part of our current day-to-day work. In fact, more than 1,100 members of our community attended 120 education sessions hosted by the ACO last year alone!

Thank you for making these learning opportunities available to us. We have found all the presentations that we have attended to be very informative and engaging. - Education Event Participant

Families and professionals have consistently asked for more – more topics; more session offerings; more time to review materials and ask questions that are most relevant to their unique situation and challenges. At the same time, we have also consistently heard that timing, location and costs are barriers families face in taking advantage of the sessions offered.

But not to worry! The ACO will continue to offer our Education Days, Pathways to Permanence 2, Adoption Competency Training (ACT) and our many half and full day workshops on key adoption topics. These new webcasts will provide an additional learning platform to our community!
