As many of you know (probably from experience) it is difficult to get children with Autism to try new things so I thought I would put her in this program in an attempt to work on the issue. I have to say I was ready to give up the first day after trying to get her to put the helmet on for nearly 30 minutes. Then the great Staff there took over and gave her two choices, either she could put it on herself or the teacher was going to do it for her.
Well needless to say, she put the helmet on herself and the rest is history. She got on the horse and the rest seemed to come natural to her.
