Welcome to Autism Horses Group
At Autism Horses Group, we help people from all walks of life with capacity building and independent functioning. Our programs are based on the most up-to-date research and are individually tailored for each participant.
Our multidisciplinary team understand the challenges that being a parent or caregiver of a specific-needs person are, and our programs are developed for the participant as well as their support network by providing a ‘no demand stimulus’ therapy environment. We aim to support members of our community who experience their environment hypo-reactively, reducing the sensory experience which can be overwhelming, anxiety provoking and scary.
Autism Horses Group Practise a Relationship Based, Play and Experiential Model of Therapy.
We work with specific-needs children and adults. Our ground-breaking and innovative programs are developed to your specific therapy goals, delivering outcomes, goal progression and achievement. The programs are unique in their structure, using evidence-based techniques to regulate our body’s autonomic nervous system through the calming rhythms of the horse’s.
Why Choose Us?
Our approach to therapy is based on the most recent and informed research, showing that neural pathways in the brain of some of us respond favourably to sensory modulation.
A caring and fun personalised therapy environment, where one size doesn’t fit all.
Evidence-Based & Data Driven
We provide a full in-depth report for your annual NDIS Planning Meeting.
Everything we do goes back into enhancing and serving you and the neurodiverse community.
We Work With a Range of Neurodiverse Clients Using Our Program Model of Somatic Therapy
Autism Horses Group uses Somatic Therapy, experienced alongside equine assisted activities, to help people with autism, down syndrome, who have suffered a stroke, fetal alcohol syndrome, pathological demand avoidance, ADHD, stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from the ages of two upwards.
Our Therapy Programs
Our program model is Equine Assisted Somatic Therapy. We are not equine therapists, but specialist educators and counsellors.
We chose horses as our co-facilitators for their calming effect on the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which leads to and promotes interpersonal and intra-personal skill-building opportunities.
Capacity Building & Independent Functioning
Our Approach is Simple and Unique, As We Work and Live The Same Life As You
Autism Horses Group's skilled and compassionate multidisciplinary team developed advanced evidence-based programs incorporating Specialist Education, Counselling, Psychology, Occupational Therapy and Liberty Based Horsemanship to create connections, overcome fears and build the confidence within our clients.
