iTalk With Horses
This program runs in conjunction with Ithaca College connecting horses and humans in a unique partnership. Under the guidance of Clinical Professor, Tina Caswell, graduate clinicians, alongside some of the areas leading communication specialists, work with children who are low or non-verbal, guiding them in their communication skills with alternative and augmentative forms of communication. This happens while the children are on horseback. From this unique view of the world, children are highly motivated to communicate in meaningful ways. Through this specially developed and peer-reviewed program, children are recognizing that communication is the bridge between confusion and clarity and are eager to utilize these new tools to express their thoughts. With this super team of therapists and equine professionals, along with an amazing group of dedicated volunteers, miracles happen here at Kali’s Klubhouse.
