The Barn at Spring Brook Farm offers an Individual Program that allows children to participate in animal-assisted activities one hour a week for 12 consecutive weeks during our Fall and Spring programs. During our Individual Program, children engage in a variety of hands-on activities designed to match their interests and goals. Children gain confidence while performing traditional backyard tasks such as grooming, feeding, and exercising the animals. They also engage in activities designed to cultivate communication, socialization, safety awareness, and most importantly fun!
Families work with our Program Manager to set goals and track progress over the term. Each child works one-on-one with a trained volunteer with the goal of complementing existing therapies and targeting focus areas. Progress reports and individualized goal tracking is provided to families at the end of the term.
Registration for the Spring Individual Program opens January 8th.
Spring session runs from March 2nd – May 22nd.
