Individual Programs

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for the Spring Individual Program!

Individual Program (IP) enables children with disabilities to participate in animal-assisted and nature-based activities, one hour a week during the fall and spring. While matched with a trained volunteer, 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 gardening, 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.

For Spring 2024, we will run two 6- week sessions – Either in person or via Zoom!

Program Dates:    February 26th to April 5th       and    April 15th to May 24th
