‘Kids will be kids’ right? Sometimes they are rambunctious. Sometimes they are out of control. Maybe they are just over-tired or over-stimulated…or maybe your child has a Disruptive Behavior Disorder.
This was a pretty good article about the things to look for. It also talks about a range of behavior disorders and about when/how to seek help.
We work with kids, teens and even adults with ADD/ADHD/PTSD and other disruptive behavior disorders. Through work with horses our clients learn first hand how their impulsive/unfocused behavior effects those around them, especially their horse! We work on increasing focus, decreasing impulsivity. We may work on improving self-soothing skills and building self confidence. And this is just an example!
There are many resources available if you feel your child needs help. Equine Assisted Therapy can be a powerful part of the treatment plan. We will be happy to show you around, introduce you to our wonderful horses, learn more about what you are dealing with and share how our program may be able to help. Call or Email to schedule a visit.
