AEP is a required prerequisite of this course.

Course Description

 AEP is a required prerequisite of this course.

Teens and Tweens Online course offers a thorough introduction and education to the parental joys, challenges, and typical behaviours connected to teen and tween adoptions. 

The course is designed to build on learning obtained during the AEP Online and as such, participants are expected to have completed the AEP Online or a face-face AEP in their community as a pre-requisite of this course.

This five week course has 4 modules, with a new module opening up each week.  Each module will be open for 2 weeks, opening on the Thursday and closing 2 weeks later on the Wednesday.  This should allow participants plenty of time to complete the coursework and assignments.  Coursework demands approximately 5 hours a week of your time. The course also includes two live online discussions.

Lessons are delivered through an engaging mix of video, audio, writing, and group discussion. Participants will benefit from working with experienced facilitators as well as a strong support team.

*Note: This course includes 2 mandatory live online discussions. The 1-hour live discussions are typically held during weekday evenings.  If this will be a problem for you, please contact the AEP-Online Coordinator
