Nitzan was founded in 1964, and has grown steadily, now running 40 branches throughout Israel.
In the last decade Nitzan develops intervention programs for parents and children. The programs are focused on the emotional world of parents, children and teachers. The ECC- Emotional Cognitive Coaching method, developed at Nitzan is evidence based and gained great success in Israel and abroad. This method brought a change in the lives of parents and their children.
The ECC – Emotional Cognitive Coaching method, developed by Dr. Maly Danino, to coach parents of children with learning disabilities and ADHD. Based on sound theoretical principles affected by psychoanalytical, cognitive and behavioral theories, and the three stage model developed By Dr. Clara E. Hill (Hill 2005), The E.C.C (Emotional Cognitive Coaching) method is focused on the parent and guides him through the path of understanding his own feelings, while providing new cognitive insights which will help him learn more effective behavior patterns.
This is an evidence based method, which received recognition in Israel and abroad helps to address the parents’ particular needs and challenges.
The book: “Coach Your Child to Success” (2011) by Dr. Maly Danino, serves as the manual for this program and was translated to: English, Lithuanian, Latvian and Arabic.
"Coach your child to successes" by Dr. Maly Danino, published in 2011 in Israel, is a practical self-help guide for parents, coaches, educators, psychologists, teachers and other professionals seeking to help children diagnosed with learning disabilities and ADHD. The book was translated to English in 2012, to Lithuanian in 2016, to Arabic in 2017 and is currently translated to Latvian.

We specialize in delivering custom made workshops and seminars for professionals.
In Israel, for the last decade hundreds of professionals from the field of education, counseling and therapy were trained to date. Hundreds of parents underwent the training process and achieved a positive change in their life. Several seminars were conducted abroad in; Chicago (2014), Vilnius (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019), Kaunas (2015), Siauliai (2016), Riga and Liepaja (2016), Nigeria (2018). In Lithuania Professionals from the ministry of education were certified in a ten days training seminar.
Along my professional path over the years, I have met many parents who conduct themselves in various ways in relation to their child. I made the decision to transform the meeting with them, and their unique and tender touch to my heart, into a distinct work plan that would serve as a model for them to develop a sense of being that is self-able, thus allowing them to cope effectively with the challenge of being a parent to a child with learning disabilities & ADHD.
