Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy with Horsepower

The Children's TherAplay Foundation, Inc. is the largest pediatric hippotherapy facility in the country, providing physical, occupational, and speech therapies using equine movement as a treatment tool for children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorders, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, developmental delays, and more.

Our therapists combine a sensory-rich, child-centered clinic with hippotherapy – physical, occupational, or speech therapy using the horse as a treatment tool – to provide inputs that help children reach their developmental goals. 

A child with a disability wants to learn, develop and achieve all the things their siblings and peers do. Children's TherAplay helps make their dreams of independence a reality.
