Review for Valle del Sol, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I sought help from Valle del Sol when my son Manny egan acting out at home and in school. My son was very impulsive and aggressive. He was fighting with other children and tried to hit his teachers. At home, he would get frustrated and angry and would throw toys at me. He wasn't like this when he was younger. Through Valle del Sol, Manny began working with a behavior coach and was placed on medication after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. His behavior coach taught him ways to control his emotions instead of lashing out. They gave me a behavior chart to use at home and at school to receive positive rewards for good behavior. He learned not to hit - both himself and others because sometimes he would get so frustrated that he would hit himself in the head. Valle del Sol offered me parenting classes, which helped me improve and learn new parenting skills. Manny is doing well in school now an d has made many good friends. I'm very grateful for Valle del Sol's help because his behavior has improved so much.
