A kid’s haircut – no big deal right?

Unless your child has autism. This article/video clip provides some tips on how to make what can bey a trying event into just one of life’s experiences.

In our work with those on the spectrum we have to be aware of each client’s specific triggers – bright lights, loud noises, just too much activity – all of these things have the potential to overwhelm a person on the spectrum. Though they rarely happen at the ranch, we need to have strategies in place for dealing with “melt downs”.  And most importantly, we have to be prepared to “punt” – things just don’t always go as planned and you need to be flexible in order to make the most of every opportunity.

We would love to show you around the ranch, introduce you to our wonderful horses and share more with you about how our program works. Call us today to schedule a visit.
