Outpatient Therapy Program (Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies)
SUF provides outpatient Physical, Occupational and Speech therapies to children with a wide variety of disabilities, whether cognitive or physical. It specializes in, but is not limited to, the use of the horse as a therapy tool (which is commonly referred to as Hippotherapy). These therapies are provided by national and state licensed therapists. These services utilize equine movement as part of an integrated intervention program to achieve outcomes. The horse provides a dynamic base of support, making it an excellent tool for increasing truck strength and control, balance, building overall postural strength and endurance, addressing weight bearing, and motor planning. Equine movement also offers well-modulated sensory input to vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile and visual channels. A Closer Look.
