FIA has been the incubator for the Adoption and the Schools project which is offering presentations for students and educators in the classroom as well as teacher workshops. A 30-minute presentation including a song and puppets has been developed for K-3 classes and is now being operated as a program of the Adoption Council of Ontario (ACO). A teachers' booklet on adoption has been prepared and is available through ACO. Presentations are also available for other primary school and secondary school classes. (For further details on the Adoption and the Schools program, call the ACO Adoption Resource Centre, at 416 482-0021.)
