Angel, at age 3, was hyperactive, extremely destructive and highly aggressive when Aviva started working with him and his parents. His parents felt helpless, and couldn’t even take him to the park because of his aggressive behavior towards other children. Angel’s mother was depressed and extremely frustrated with her son because she did not know how to control his behavior.

Aviva helped Angel and his mother with a special type of Parent Child Interactive Therapy for children ages 2-7 years with behavioral and emotional disorders. During the course of their treatment, Angel was diagnosed with autism. Between the therapy and learning how to manage his autism, Angel’s family discovered a new sense of calm and happiness.

With Aviva’s guidance, Angel’s behavior improved dramatically. His parents learned not only how to control their son, but how to parent him with love.
