SmartStart Toolbox 2
SmartStart Program:
Helping an Internationally Adopted Child
Develop a Foundation for Learning.
Toolbox II, Ages 5 to 8


The SmartStart Program Toolbox II is designed to help parents facilitate thinking and learning in their internationally adopted children ages 5 to 8. It offers specific activities that focus on processes that have been found to positively influence the cognitive development of young children.

The Toolbox II is designed with the basic needs and problems of newly internationally adopted preschool and school age children in mind. The types of activities are the same as in the Toolbox I, but the instructions are slightly modified to accommodate older children with better command of English.

The Toolbox II attempts to maintain a link between home and future school-based learning, promoting bonding between children and parents through shared family activities.
