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.
