Hippotherapy positively impacts the development of balance and postural control. This is observed regularly in sessions incorporating equine movement, has been supported through research and is addressed in AHA, Inc.’s Level I and II curriculum. Balance and Postural Control are essential for the development of skilled action and are reliant on the Vestibular and Visual Systems.

This course allows the attendee to delve into the vestibular system, its anatomy and function, related neuroanatomy, its close alliance with the visual system, and rehabilitation considerations when this system is impaired. Participants will learn assessments and traditional treatment options, with labs providing an opportunity for practice. Special considerations will be presented when incorporating equine –assisted therapy for individuals with balance/postural control and sensory processing limitations.

Early bird registration ends August 3rd.
