How Horses Open New Doors for Children with ASD

Autism is a complex developmental disability.  There is a delay or abnormal functioning in:

  • Social interaction
  • Language used in social communication
  • Symbolic or imaginative play

People with Autism may demonstrate unusual responses to people or objects and show resistance to changes in their routine.  Individuals may experience sensitivities to sights, sounds, touch, smells and tastes and may:

  • Block ears
  • Smell everything
  • Self-injure through biting or hurting themselves
  • Demonstrate repetitive body movements such as rocking or hand flapping

Claudine Pelletier-Milet, a French riding instructor, shares countless stories – anecdotal evidence – of equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) can be a means to forming and nurturing lines of communication while encouraging a healthy and natural evolution of self in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Within these pages she sorts through theory from fields of medicine, education and psychology, while daily applying her own institution and empathy in her work. This book raises questions, answers many of them, and recounts breakthroughs and moments of elations certain to bring hope to the families and caregivers of autistic individuals.
