Re: Different types of therapy
My son is 4 and has been receiving hippotherapy with his Occupational therapy for about a year now (a half hour of traditional OT and a half hour of hippotherapy once a week). It has really helped him with strengthening his core and with receiving the sensory feedback that he needs. They also do many exercises that help with his coordination (like throwing bean bags into the holes on a board). An added bonus is that he really looks forward to going to OT and it breaks up his routine of more traditional therapies. I feel really blessed that we have this opportunity and I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance to take your daughter to one!
