Free Webinar | Understanding Your Adopted Child’s Behavior
February 6, 2018
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT
It can be challenging at times to understand your adopted child’s development and behavior. When confronted with any change, you may be tempted to ask: is this something most children do, or is this because my child is adopted?
Join a free webinar with Dr. Elaine Schulte to learn how to differentiate between typical and atypical development and behavior in children, specifically as it relates to adopted children. In this webinar, Dr. Schulte will outline attachment patterns, reactive attachment disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sensory processing disorder (SPD) and attention deficit disorder (ADHD). She will explain how you can identify typical behavior as well as signs of attachment or attention disorders and how atypical behaviors can be managed.
Dr. Elaine Schulte completed her pediatric residency training at Albany Medical Center Hospital in 1991. In 1996, she founded the International Adoption Program and directed it until 2007, when she moved to the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Schulte was the Chair of the Department of General Pediatrics at the Cleveland Clinic until 2017. During that time, in addition to her administrative responsibilities, she maintained an active clinical practice, with specific interests in learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and autism. She was also the Medical Director of the Adoption Program at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. Currently, Dr. Schulte is the Vice Chair for Academic Affairs and Faculty Development at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in the Bronx. She is also the medical director of the newly formed Adoption Program. The Adoption Program at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) provides comprehensive care for families and children whose lives have been touched by adoption. Its services include pre-adoption consultations designed to support parents prior to adoption, post-adoption medical evaluations, and ongoing care for adopted children.
This webinar will be useful for all adoptive parents and adoption professionals. Certificates of Attendance and CEUs will be provided to attendees. This webinar will be recorded and the recording link will be sent out to those who register but cannot attend live.Register now for “Understanding Your Adopted Child’s Behavior”
