Special Needs that May Come with Adoption

How pre-adoption issues (e.g., post traumatic stress, attachment disorders) may impact a child, what special issues a child who has been adopted may face in a school setting and how to best handle these, and what special issues these children face in adolescence and beyond.
Our speakers will be Nancy Ng, a nationally known family counselor and parent of 12 children, nine who were adopted and have various emotional and physical disabilities and Dr. Judy Rothenberg, a psychologist experienced in the schools as well as private practice, who is also an adoptive parent.
