Abstract

In Italy, the number of adopted school-age children is increasing. According to Commission of Intercountry Adoption (2013), 3106 children were adopted , 47.5% of them are between 5 and 9 years old. The present action-research aims to explore the spread of good approaches in schools in terms of welcoming of adopted children. For this purpose 268 teachers of primary schools were involved to analyze the social representation about adopted children and their family. The results show a semplified vision of the adoptive family, which is described as heroic family or, on the contrary, as an a family with difficulty.
