Helping Foster & Adopted Children Transition To A New School

September 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CDT

Helping Foster & Adopted Children Transition to a New School will assist foster/adoptive parents in preparing to enroll a child in a new school. It will also provide practical tips for helping their children explain adoption to their classmates in a way that is comfortable to them and gives suggestions regarding answers to common adoption questions that children may ask.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand logistical tasks (such as healthcare, enrollment paperwork, and IEP’s) that must be addressed before a child can attend a new school.
  • Explain adoption to their child in a way that the child can relay it to their classmates and peers.

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.


If you have any questions about this training or how to register, please email ask@uky.edu or call 859-257-7361.
