When kiddo Wesley first started therapy with us, this little wiggle worm had a hard time sitting still and holding a pencil. Oh what a difference a horse makes!
The movement of the horse, which is transferred to Wesley during the equine-assisted portion of his occupational therapy treatment, helps organize and calm Wesley’s system so he’s ready and able to learn. Now instead of throwing the pencil across the room in frustration, Wesley can sit with Miss Stephanie and work on his letters. That’s a very big step towards school readiness. Great work buddy!
He's also getting ready for the May 8 Children's TherAplay #Horsepower500 where he'll compete with Indy 500 fan favorite James Hinchcliffe and therapy horse Gideon. Looking good there Team Gideon!
