Autism Acceptance Month, Kinetic Learning:
Brought to You by Your Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
Movement is good for all of us; for young children, whether or not they are on the autism spectrum, it is essential for learning. This is one of the reasons why the traditional classroom of sit and work, sit and work is so detrimental to the healthy development of body and mind.
Equine therapy helps children with many different issues; it is being used to help children on the autism spectrum to learn. The Horse Boy and The Long Ride Home tell the story of one family and how they have developed a method of kinetic learning and brain building through their experience with their son. Horse Boy World is located near Austin, Texas and partners with universities in developing and assessing its approach.
I want to thank Arabella Carter-Johnson, mother of Iris Grace Halmshaw, for the information about this project.
