Dr. John-Foster Parent Coach
Having challenges with your foster child? Dr. John can help you and your family. Foster parent coaching is designed to fit your family' needs. International foster care expert Dr. John DeGarmo will help you to understand your foster child’s behavior, and learn what to do to help it improve in a positive and healthy fashion. Dr. John will work with you, and help you to gain new skills, tools, and strategies as a foster parent. What you will not get is a diagnosis from your foster coach. Instead, Dr. John will help you develop solid, usable tools and strategies to help your foster child become a part of your family.
What is a Foster Parent Coach?
Why a Foster Parent Coach?
International foster care expert Dr. John will help you with foster children who have ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Defiance, adoption or foster care issues, struggles with school academic and behavior issues, or other issues and challenges that are facing your child and your family.
How does it Work?
Dr. John will meet with your family for 1½ hours during the first appointment, and 1 hour for each session after that. On average, foster parents have four appointments. If they wish, families can continue to meet with Dr. John, if the need should continue. Individual sessions can be spent with Dr. John, as well.
The appointments are usually two weeks apart. This will allow you to implement the techniques that Dr. John has developed for your family. At the next session, you then meet with your foster parent coach to get your questions answered and find more solutions and strategies. Of course, you can also request once-a-week appointments, if you wish.
Appointments can be over the phone, or over the internet, such as SKYPE.
