What’s Trending in Hippotherapy?

 

We have recently added a couple MP3 players to our hippotherapy sessions.  Music can be a powerful addition to therapy specifically with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Potential benefits include: improved social behaviors, increased focus and attention, increased communication attempts such as vocalizations or verbalizations, reduced anxiety, and improved overall body awareness and coordination.

Our clients are trialing the use of headsets verses a speaker.  Some children benefit from the headsets to reduce distraction while riding and experience an overall quieting of the sensory system through the use of classical music during his/her sessions.  Others enjoy the auditory input through the added social engagement and emotional expression of singing and listening to familiar children’s songs via a speaker while astride. Thus providing opportunities to imitate various body sequencing activities and follow multi-step directions (ex. Head, Shoulder, Knees, & Toes), practicing cadence, articulation skills, enhancing auditory memory, and more!
