Hippotherapy!

After all the craziness with AAI and getting the ok to do this, we have finally started!
Logan is having a blast with the hippotherapy! He wasn't afraid and makes it through his entire sessions with no problem. I have already noticed him using his speech a great deal while on the horse. In fact, he talks their ear off the entire time!
We have also decided to do OT and PT along with the hippotherapy at Country Kids the entire summer. Logan did not qualify for summer school, so instead of sitting out of therapy for the summer, we will get it here. We were also told that it is great to do a little bit of PT and OT before and after riding the horse.

Hi,
I love your blog and photos. I am an OT and also do hippotherapy.I like how you mention doing activities before and after the sessions. You might be interested in my list of carryover activities:http://www.barbarasmithoccupationaltherapist.com/parentactivities.html
Also, if you give me permission, I would love to put the photo of Logan with that awesome peg device for rings on my blog. I am always looking to add activities and I do not have permission to use photos of the children I work with. I would give a link to your blog if you would lie. thanks,
