Abstract

The Therapy Farm offers a distinctive occupational therapy experience for those who (are disabled or) have special needs. Our unique approach is holistic, multi-sensory and fun. Far from clinical or cold, we incorporate animals like dogs and horses and the outdoors into our practice as often as possible. Our clients increase their independence in practical activities of daily living, using meaningful exercises and experiences. We incorporate sensory integration, arts and crafts and play based activities. Our unique approach also utilizes hippotherapy and animal assisted therapy where the horse or dog IS the therapeutic intervention.
