Comprehensive Child Wellness Assessments
Minnesota Department of Human Services has awarded a grant to the Adoption Medicine Clinic to strengthen permanency for adopted, foster and kinship care children. The Adoption Medicine Clinic is doing this through Comprehensive Child Wellness Assessment (CCWA). The CCWA includes a medical, developmental and mental health screening.
Check out various resources the AMC has compiled to support you and your family, including Health Topics For Preadoptive Families, a book which helps you prepare and care for your child.
Preadoption Medical Reviews and Consultations
Our physicians are here for you from the very start of your adoption journey! From answering questions regarding your preadoption medical checklist to reviewing a child referral, we are here to support you.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Evaluations
Fetal alcohol exposure is the most common cause of developmental disabilities in children. This evaluation is available for any child regardless if they are adopted or in foster care.
Advocacy, Research, Education & Clinical Services
For every child adopted out of an orphanage or impermanent care situation, millions more languish there. Our philosophy is to do all we can through legislative and educational advocacy to see that those children who remain in institutions or the foster care system have the best possible chance for a future. Some of our work is through action as partners with nonprofit foundations.
