Fostering & Adoption Podcast - Episode 37 - An interview with Daniela Shanly

In this weeks episode we have a conversation with Daniela Shanly, adoptive parent and propietor of Beech Lodge School. Beech Lodge is an attachment-focused school providing education for children aged 7 to 18 that have been failed by mainstream school. From their website 'we offer a nurturing and inovative approach to education for those children who require an individually tailored learning environment to build social and life skills.'. 

We speak to her in relation to her experience of international adoption and some of the challenges that caused and how they overcame them. She also discussed what led to her decision to start a school and some of the challenges that they had to overcome. We talk about the school and answer some listener questions as well as enjoy our usual heady mix of prattle and banter. 

Education of adopted and fostered children remains a key issue for many children and adults. So, it's well worth a listen as Daniela's story is inspiring as well as offering hope to many families who struggle to find schools where their children can feel safe and learn.

As always any reviews, feedback or questions/suggestions are welcome.
