October deal of the month
To celebrate National Adoption Week we've reduced the price of THREE top adopter titles until the end of October: The adopter’s handbook, The adopter’s handbook on education and The adopter’s handbook on therapy.
The adopter’s handbook
Are you thinking of adopting a child, in the process of adopting or have you already adopted? If so, you can use this practical handbook to find the resources that can help you to help yourself so you can feel more in control of the process. Easy-to-access information will help you handle the ups and downs of the adoption experience, and prepare you for what is likely to happen along the way.
The adopter’s handbook on education
How can adoptive parents best support their child's time in education? They know their child best, so are most likely to know whether he or she is settling into a new primary school or coping with the transition to secondary education. Teachers and other school staff need parents' guidance about how best to help adopted children feel safe and understood in the classroom. The adopter's handbook on education aims to support adoptive parents in that task and so help children to have the best possible experience at school.
The adopter’s handbook on therapy
Adoption signals a new beginning and, for the child, the start of a journey to a brighter future with the support of a loving family. For many adopted children, however, putting the past behind them isn’t always easy. Adoption support is available and so is therapeutic help. But how do you know what’s best for your child? What therapies are available and how do they work? How do you go about finding a therapist and how do you know if they are competent?
The adopter’s handbook on therapy will help. It offers clear and factual summaries of the different therapies and therapeutic parenting programmes that are available, as well as support groups and other resources.
