Autism and Adoption
This webinar will provide an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), discussion about the differences in ASD presentation, and practical resources and parenting strategies for families. Attention will be given to adoptees with autism, as well as how a diagnosis may impact relationships with siblings, birth families, and adoptive parents. We will also highlight the intersectionality of ASD with other issues connected to adoption, such as grief, maintaining relationships, and understanding the adoption story.

NCFA is pleased to welcome Anjali Van Drie, Vice President of Family Initiative, Inc., and David Brown, President of Family Initiative, Inc., for this webinar. Anjali and David have extensive experience in child welfare and providing autism services to children and families.
