A Closer Look Inside NTDC

In this short video, hear directly from parents and professionals about how this free resource is educating and empowering them with trauma-informed, culturally-relevant, and flexible training and tools.

What is the NTDC Curriculum?

The National Training and Development Curriculum (NTDC) is a new curriculum that is based on research and input from experts, families who have experience with fostering or adopting children, and former foster and adoptive youth. It provides potential foster or adoptive parents with the information and tools needed to parent a child who has experienced trauma, separation, or loss. It is a state-of-the-art classroom and online program that helps to prepare prospective foster and adoptive parents to be successful parents. In addition, the NTDC gives parents access to information and resources needed to continue building skills once they have a child in their home.

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide a state-of-the-art training program to prepare foster and adoptive parents to effectively parent children exposed to trauma, separation and loss and to provide these families with ongoing skill development needed to understand and promote healthy child development.

Train the Trainer

The NTDC Project Team offers Train the Trainer (TTT) sessions at no cost. The TTT will focus primarily on the classroom-based content; demonstrating the optimal way to train the NTDC classroom material.
