Why choose the DLC?

By the time parents find our service, they are often at their wits' end, many having tried countless ways to address diagnoses such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD or Asperger’s syndrome. What makes our approach different is that instead of looking at your child’s symptoms on a superficial level, we look for the underlying causes and are then able to address the different physical, social, intellectual and emotional aspects to ensure lasting change.

A Holistic Approach

Every aspect of the child is taken into account including physical, emotional, social and intellectual and therapies used are holistic and multi- sensory.  Read about our natural therapies.
