Did you know?

If you are a SLAC adopter you may be entitled to free on line training with Kate Cairns Associates. (Go to their website).

Read the review below and sign up via your agency to one of these on line courses:

"We completed the Attachment and Brain Development online course from KCA. It was easy to log in and access, and the materials are well written and easy to follow. We have read various books and articles about attachment theory and early development of a child's brain, plus the training received from Bromley, as part of the process to become approved adopters."

"The concepts of this online course were not new to us, but it was very good to get a different perspective and also to refresh our knowledge and thoughts on the topic. Some of the practical exercises were aimed more at professionals working with children, but it was still interesting to read about the things to observe in the behaviours/interactions between parents and children and to link these to the theory behind them."

"We do find ourselves looking out for these things as we are out and about now! We would definitely recommend this course to other adopters and are looking forward to trying some of the other online courses that are available."
