What do I need to know about treatment at Children’s TherAplay?

  • At Children’s TherAplay we provide physical and occupational therapies for children with special needs. Each hour-long therapy session takes place both in our child-focused clinic and on horseback (utilizing a treatment strategy called hippotherapy) in our indoor riding arena.
  • Children’s TherAplay operates year-round. Children may receive treatment weekly or every other week depending upon their individual needs.

  • Therapy is individualized based on each child’s needs and includes evaluation and treatment with a licensed, specially-trained physical or occupational therapist.

Treatment is by prescription only

Because physical and occupational therapies are medical treatments, all patients must have a physician's referral (prescription) to receive services at Children’s TherAplay.

Do you accept health insurance?

Absolutely. We are a licensed medical facility and accept third-party commercial health insurance, Indiana Medicaid, and Children’s Special Healthcare Services, as well as private pay.

Are there age and weight limits?

Yes, there are. As a pediatric clinic, we treat children from age 18 months up to 13 years and, to ensure safety, weight limits do apply. Please see the program parameters (Step 1 below) for details.

When I think about Joan from when he first started [treatment at Children’s TherAplay] to where he is today it reinforces the power and the magic of hippotherapy. ... It’s incredible.
