Event description
Workshop on Equine Assisted Occupational Therapy for Parents and Professionals

About this Event

Equine assisted therapy is an effective way of providing physical and emotional therapy as well as psychological benefits to people with autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, seizure disorder, visual and hearing impairment, anxiety disorder, learning disorder, substance abuse, multiple sclerosis, development disorder, muscular dystrophy, amputation, brain injury as well as behavioural problems.

There are many benefits of equine therapy. It can improve proprioception, sensory processing, motor co-ordination, posture, balance, muscle tone, concentration, self-esteem and self-confidence in riders with special needs.

The correct interaction of the child with the horse also serves as an essential tool for improving the social skills of the child with respect to other people.
