Witness the magic that happens between a horse and a child with special needs. No words. Just love and understanding. And healing.
Meet Laurie Landy, Founding Director of Special Strides and Occupational Therapist, and Suzie Rehr, Executive Director & Physical Therapist. These women are passionate about the horse - human connection and using it to help children of all ages to thrive. They share the magic and the science behind that connection and how the Special Strides team in Monroe, NJ uses it to help special needs individuals enjoy more focus, balance, arm and leg movement, and even talking...while having fun. Through their love and hard work, they are improving lives, one stride at a time!
How do you keep that calm, balance and focus once you're back home? Sara Carapezzi and Miriam Rosenberg of The School of Royal Yoga join us to share a breathing technique and a yoga pose that they use with individuals and with families at their Center for Special Needs, Inc. in Chester, NJ. Do this for yourself...do it with your child. Namaste.
