The Dan Center Philosophy
The philosophy of The Dan Center, was formed by our personal experiences and research
with the various therapies received by our learning challenged and autistic kids. We relate
the application of alternative integrative approaches to the sensory, listening and auditory
processing, behavioral and nutritional assessment that each individual exhibits.
Every therapy is not appropriate for every individual. That is why the assessment is pivotal
in this process. If and when therapy is deemed appropriate, it is critical that management
is done in a holistic manner.
The Dan Center relates the holistic management to a “House with Many Windows.”
As learning deficits and autism are wide in spectrum, there is also a wide berth of
alternatives to approach the disorders. The “House of Autism and the Learning
Challenged,” has many windows from which it can be viewed or understood.
• If one looks at it merely from one window, one will only see one room of the house.
• If one looks through the ABA window, the approach may be behavioral.
• If one looks through the nutritional window, the approach may be through diet and/or
• If one looks through the Occupational Therapy window, the approach may be through
sensory integration and activities of daily living
If one looks through Irlen Syndrome, the approach may be through scotopic sensitivity
screening and colored overlays.
• If one looks through the Tomatis and Berard window, the approach may be through
vibroacoustics, auditory processing and listening.
At the Dan Center, our philosophy is to look into as many windows as possible to fully
appreciate the multi-faceted complications of the learning challenged and autistic individual.
It is our experience that when a therapy program has been completed,
the work has not ended.
