Apraxia and Horse Therapy

If you’ve been following me for awhile now you’ll know that my son has Apraxia and sensory processing disorder, that my hubby is a frontline worker, and we live in country.

For the past few weeks my son has been having nightmares and severe anxiety because he’s afraid daddy is gonna catch the germs and get sick. The only thing that has been able to calm him down is our horse. We bought the horse last year to help with his sensory processing disorder and it has helped tremendously with his postural control, communication, and overall sensor input. Curious has anybody tried Horse therapy for their kids with special needs?

Also how are your kids coping with the lockdown so far? The change of the routine is taking toll on our family and the only thing normal for them is our horse.

Disclaimer: I’m not a healthcare professional and I’m just sharing that horse therapy has helped my son with his sensory issues and communication. Nor am I suggesting that horse therapy is a cure for Apraxia or sensory processing disorder.
