IAC runs three different courses for prospective adopters.
If you are being assessed by IAC your assessment administrator will refer you for the courses detailed above, at which point you will be sent details of the next available course.
If you are resident in a Local Authority or Regional Adoption Agency that subscribes to IAC, but which undertakes the home study assessment themselves, a social worker from your LA/RAA will usually refer you for the preparation course, at which point you will be contacted with details of the next available course.
“I found it comprehensive and helpful from day one”
“A very valuable experience that can’t be replaced by reading a book”
Once you and your child have returned to the UK IAC runs occasional Adoption Support Workshops on such topics as Exploring Adoption with Children, Life Story Work, Building Attachment through Play, Adoption and Schools and Adoption and the Teenage years amongst others.
"It was helpful, providing steps for us to implement at each stage of our children’s development, and what are children may be experiencing at each stage.”
“The group discussions were helpful and hearing other people’s experiences.”
