Autism: Addressing the Senses Sensory issues are common among children with autism. Sensory integration activities are designed to help them adjust, for instance, to the way something feels against their skin. Or it may be how they react to certain smells or sounds. Dogs and horses have both sometimes been incorporated into these activities. The children typically find it calming to work with animals. And animals easily hold the attention of children
It takes a caring, hard working team of highly quailfied physical, occupational, and speech therapists, Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors, along with dedicated volunteers and well-trained horses to make these programs successful!
