We were recently contacted by Dr. Anderman regarding this study on academic success for internationally adopted children. Please consider participating in the study.

Dear Families,

 I am the parent of an internationally adopted child, and I also am a faculty member at The Ohio State University, where I do research on academic motivation in adolescents.  Both as a parent of an internationally adopted child and as a researcher, I have found that there is virtually no solid, peer-reviewed research on academic success in internationally adopted children. This year, a few of my colleagues and I launched a study to examine academic success in internationally adopted adolescents. The goal of this study is to understand some of the barriers to success in these students’ lives, and to be able to make research-based recommendations for parents and educators, in order to better support our kids’ success in school.

 I’d like to invite you to participate in our study. It involves your completing a parent survey, and your adopted child completing a student survey (each take about a half hour or so to complete). We are looking for families with internationally adopted children who are aged 11 and above.  Parents of younger adoptees also are invited to participate, but children must be 11 or older.  All participants get entered into a lottery to win one of several Amazon gift certificates.  If you are interested in participating, please e-mail me at: anderman.1@osu.edu .

 Thank you for considering this request!
