About Me and the Way I Work

Love  Beinng and Working with Me When I  Am the Most Difficult to Be With and to Work with, Because That’s When I  Really Need It



The above is the motto that moves me in my practice. I borrowed the idea from a Swedish proverb, which I truly believe should move us all through life and keep us together: Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it. I am Dani Dimitrova – just Dani for the kids and their parents.

My Master’s Degree thesis was Assessment of the Hemispheric Lateralization In Children with Dyslexia. My plans for a PhD Program are towards assessing the effectiveness of some neuromodulation interventions.


I have integrated all my knowledge, expertise, skills and experience into a unique intensive motor, multisensory, speech&language, cognitive and educational program –  Integra Master Program® The Integrative Approach to Communication Disorders. Each individual holistic intervention schedule is developed after comprehensive assessments of child’s neuropsychological status and it is implemented at least 5 days per week in 2 or 4-hour-long sessions, with a home program for the off days. Neuroscience has proven long ago that the brain is plastic and it can really change and rewire at any age, but to achieve that requires not only adequate but also daily stimulations.

The children I work with are not only Bulgarians. I am proficient in the English and Spanish languages, which allows an effective therapeutic and educational process with English and Spanish speaking kids (online or in-person).

As the president of the Association for Children with Developmental Problems BONITATIS, personally and through our public activities, I am in constant touch with parents and professionals in the field from all over the world to exchange knowledge and experience.

Working with kids on the Autism Spectrum Disorders and kids with ADD, ADHD, Speech and Language Disorders, Specific (Dyslexia) and Non-specific reading impairments or other Learning Disabilities is not only a job for me, but it is the cause of my life. I am committed to it with all my heart and mind and the reason is deeply personal – I am a mother of a boy with autism myself. My beautiful angel has taught me more than all the courses I’ve taken until now. I am following him through this difficult but exciting journey and I am continuing to learn every single day from him and from all the kids I work with.
