This presentation will provide information on the issues facing adopted children that can affect classroom learning. Strategies for fostering the child's sense of self will be provided.

Schools play an essential role in the development of student self-concept. "Who am I?" is a fundamentally challenging question for all children, but it is an especially fraught question for those students who have been adopted. From the child's birth, society's values are such that the needs of the childless couple or biological parents are given priority over the needs of the child. This leads to marginalization of the child, which further interferes with the adopted child's social-emotional development, often manifesting in classroom behavioural issues.
