ACO's Adoption Awareness Education Month Fall 2020

[Download Education Day Flyer]

The ACO is really excited to not only celebrate Adoption Awareness Month, but introduce ACO Education Month!! Instead of having a one-day education event, we are going virtual and spreading out our educational events and opportunities throughout the month of November. We invite you to set aside some time in November and join with us on what we think will be a really worthwhile and meaningful experience.

What people say about ACO Education Days?

"I love it - it's always worth the time and effort."

"Really enjoyed the session - wish it was longer."

"Enjoyed (the speaker's) down-to-earth, straight talk."

"I appreciated that the speaker was both an adoptive parent and a clinician. I learned a lot from her that I can apply to my work as a professional and I learned a lot about empathizing/supporting friends who want to adopt."

“A great presentation from a practitioner's perspective; honest, thoughtful, and allowed for great discussion and information sharing.”

“[The facilitator] has an energy and way of communicating that was informative and engaging.”

“Lots of clear, helpful, useful, and practical examples and strategies. We better understand the concept of attachment, its issues, and enjoyed being able to share our thoughts and questions as a group.”
