About

Working With The NDIS

At REAL PD we offer a variety of experiences for clients who have current

NDIS Plans. In recent years more evidence-based research is appearing to

support the role of horses and the environment in working with vulnerable

people and clients with special needs. Through interaction in the environment

and with the horses our clients achieve a calmer sense, they are more present

and can focus for longer. In our NDIS sessions pattens are beginning to emerge

around clients particularly children with ADHD or Autism can focus longer

with compassionate facilitation.

When clients interact effectively with the horses, they can develop balance with

coping skills and learn to regulate their behaviour over time. Horses recognise

human behaviours and emotions and often mirror them in sessions. Through this

visual information, awareness and compassion a relationship begins to build

between the client, facilitator and the horses. These relationships can then be

duplicated in life outside the sessions, using the tools learnt in sessions.
