ALP is founded on the principles of partnership. Our curriculum
is designed to complement the adoption information and resources provided by adoption
agencies. Our Tools For Agencies page provides the information that you need to
discuss our courses with your clients. Our handouts describe the course contents
and our discussion guides are a great tool to dig in with your clients and see what
they took away from the course. Our tools page also includes badges that you can
place on your site to send clients directly to the courses you recommend.

In addition, we know that many professionals in social work and related fields offer
service to clients touched by adoption. ALP offers online courses
for adoption professionals to provide information and training in a way that is both
convenient and timely. Several of our courses have been approved for CEU credit by
The National Association of Social Workers (NASW).
