Getting to Know: Equine Therapy
A Chicago-area equine therapy program was recently featured on NBC Chicago news as part of their Giving Tuesday initiatives to help raise funds for charitable programming. Equine therapy offers many benefits to adults with autism, such as improved coordination, exercise skills, vocational training, and more. In the past, Rimland individuals have taken part in horseback riding with a similar program called Equestrian Connection in Lake Forest, Illinois. Clients have been able to experience the benefits of this type of therapy and also enjoy the activity as a fun outing. We are so pleased to see increased awareness around this unique form of support for adults with autism. See the NBC Chicago story here.
