Play • 36 min

Avigail and her husband, Daniel, moved to Israel soon after their marriage.  Avigail continued her education there, earning advanced degrees in teaching reading to children with Dyslexia and cognitive education for children with ADHD symptoms. 
In 2003, she and her husband, with three small children moved to Moscow, Russia.  There she taught in three different schools and headed up the English department in one of the schools.   
Upon our return to Israel, she emersed herself in studying and developing treatment options for ADHD for her own six kids and many struggling students.  She collaborated with her father-in-law, Dr. Amnon Gimpel (psychiatrist and neurologist), and developed a parent training program.  She moved on to develop a teacher’s training program.  Avigail teaches at Hertzog College as well as lectures in Israeli schools and to parent groups all over Israel.  She works in private practice, training parents to become ADHD coaches to their children, and spouses to learn a new love language to communicate with respect.  
She recently published her first book “HyperHealing”, based on many years of research and practice both as a mother of a good number of kids diagnosed with ADHD, as well as a classroom teacher of children struggling with ADHD symptoms.  Her second book HyperHealing, Show me the Science was published in September 2022.
