Case Study on Therapeutic Riding and Autism

I am in the process of writing an academic research paper, and I am performing a case study on the effectiveness of using therapeutic riding as a treatment for children with autism. Mainly, I would need to talk to parents about their child's improvement through the journey. If anyone has any contacts for this, I would greeatly appreciate it.

There have been TONS of studies on this subject so it may be worthwhile to read some and see if there are gaps or areas that haven't been addressed that would make your work unique.

I would contact local therapeutic riding centers, pediatricians, school nurse or counselor, local autism chapter, and some physical/speech/and occupational therapist for starters. Always be sure to ask if there's someone else they could recommend. Be sure to ask about not only success stories, but cases where equine assisted therapy did not work.

I think if you read what's out there then do your interviews without a preconceived outcome, you'll be surprised at the direction of your final effort. Good luck!

I know of stride Alaska that does Autistic Kiddos.

For a bit of a different look, Google "Temple Grandin". There are many videos and articles on her and by her.

She is 71, autistic and a professor in animal science.

Reading and perhaps contacting her might offer another perspective:)

I have a daughter who has autism and has been participating in therapeutic riding for years! I would love to share how it has helped her, if it isn't too late.

That would be wonderful thank you so much. All data collected through my case study and reported in my academic paper will be completely anonymous, so your daughter's identity will always be protected. It would be more efficient to communicate through email, so could you please reply with yours in order for me to reach out to you?
