Animal Assisted Activities for Children
In addition, we offer a limited number of opportunities to work with individual children with specific needs (such as grieving - working through a loss, ADD/ADHD, Autism, etc.) who will benefit from animal assisted activities. These activities are designed to comfort, strengthen, and encourage children and extend for a specific time period on a regular and consistent basis. Parents will work with Dr. Ashby to design a plan with specific goals and outcomes. One-on-one sessions are 30 minutes. Animal-assisted activities may include petting, grooming, playing with the animals, and many other meaningful, fun activities in a safe and accepting environment.
