Horsing Around: Behavioral Programs

Helping Hoof offers sessions tailored to address the behavioral concerns of our participants and their families. Kuniko has worked extensively with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and created programs for problematic behaviors, including escape, attention, object and sensory seeking behaviors as well as perseverative behaviors. She also worked with participants on socially significant behaviors like expressive verbal communication, eye contact and peer interaction, and self care and daily living skills.

Sessions can be mounted (on horseback) or on the ground (activities that do not involve riding or sitting on the horse). Session type is determined after an initial meeting/assessment in which safety, comfort level and what type of session would be most beneficial are considered.

One-Hour Sessions are $75 after a one-time $50 Assessment.
Participants who receive SNAP (food stamps) benefits are eligible for a reduced rate.
