Every family faces them, whether you have a newly adopted child who has just arrived home who is having trouble eating or a teenager who is struggling to transition to high school.

Many parents want some extra tools to help them help their child with better discipline, routines or boundaries.

Whatever your situation, Dillon International’s coaching program may be able to help. We can even help a family before their adopted child comes home to prepare to meet that child’s individual needs.

As part of our Lifetime Support Services department, coaching is independent from our adoption program. All client coaching is 100 percent confidential, and your sessions will never be shared with your adoption caseworker.

Coaching can be done online or over the phone, with the participant and coach meeting weekly or episodically for a varying number of sessions depending on the situation. Coaching is open to any adoptive parent or any adult adoptee, regardless of the adoption agency and regardless of whether the adoption was international, domestic or through foster care.

We want to help you, whether Dillon was your placing agency or not.
