Dan is a Washington native. He grew up in the city of Marysville. He attended Western Washington University, earning his Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders. He then attended Southern Illinois University (SIU), earning his Master of Science in Communication Disorders and Sciences. Dan has been studying and working in the field of Speech and Language Pathology since 2000. During his time at Southern Illinois, he helped create a rural outreach program for children with autism in collaboration with the Behavior Analysis and Treatment program. This program provided treatment, education and parent support. After graduating SIU he returned to Washington and worked in a variety of settings always maintaining a caseload of children with autism. Dan then began his own private practice, providing intervention in the home environment. During this time he was able to learn a significant amount about the needs of the children, and utilizing the experiences he had from his past, he had a vision to create a comprehensive facility that supported the needs of children with autism all in one place. By integrating providers, allowing them to team around treatment he felt that this would create the best outcomes and future for the children. Since opening ICAN Center for Autism in 2009, the facility has grown to include 7 different disciplines, 22 treatment providers and 12 plus programs.
Dan and his wife Amy have four daughters, Bailey, Peyton, Madden and Britton. He loves spending time with his family, traveling, sports and being out on the water.

Shana is so excited to be back out west and working with so many great kids! After completing her undergraduate degree at University of Wisconsin—Madison, in OT, she came out to Seattle for a couple of amazing years! But, she felt the pull to go back to school and ended up back in the midwest to complete her Doctorate in OT, at Washington University in St. Louis. While there, she focused her education and research on children with developmental disabilities, specifically autism. She has worked in both public and private schools, has done in-home intervention as an early intervention therapist, but by far has enjoyed providing Occupational Therapy in private clinics the most. She has extensive training in Autism Spectrum Disorders and completed an intensive mentoring program in Sensory Processing Disorder. She has also received training in various intervention approaches including Integrated Listening Systems, Handwriting Without Tears, and the Kawar Protocol. Shana truly believes in the importance of research in expanding and improving the services for the children she works with. She hopes to continue her involvement in various research areas, including the efficacy of sensory based treatment for children with autism, and the benefit of increasing core strength and praxis in children with autism. Shana has been working at ICAN Center for Autism since October of 2009. In addition to seeing children for individual therapy, she helps to incorporate handwriting and fine motor into the preschool curriculum and helps to identify the individual sensory needs of each preschooler.

Shana loves spending her free time outdoors hiking and exploring with her friends and family. And while most of her family lives a plane ride away, she tries to see them as often as possible. She is so excited to be at the ICAN Center for Autism and working with such amazing therapists and families.
