Do Adoptees Do Better or Worse in School?

Date(s) & Time:


Online - Pre-Recorded

As parents, we have the highest hopes for how we can impact and improve our children’s lives. Because of this, many adoptive parents may worry about whether their children will succeed in school once they are home. In this webinar, Joel L.A. Peterson will speak to his research in education as well as provide anecdotes from his own experience as an adoptee. Throughout, he will cover many of the myths and challenges surrounding adoption and school to show that success in school is the norm, not the exception, for adoptees. 

Intended for: Adoptive Parents
