Horse Boy Method™ is a tried and tested, scientifically proven, means of gaining communication and re-patterning the brain for people on the autism spectrum, ADD, ADHD, Anxiety and other neuro-sensory diagnoses using horses, movement and a natural environment.
Our two main programs, Horse Boy™ Method and Horse Boy™ Movement Method, are based on the following scientifically based observations:
Stress impairs learing.
We are able to learn new concepts more easily when we feel safe.
Movement promotes learning.
Horse Boy Learning
We provide developmental and educational support for children Birth-8 years old. We can provide developmental assessment, behavior support and educational services tailored to your child's and families needs. It is important that these supports work across environments so we can also provide assistance and observation at day care or at home.
The Equine Discovery Center is an approved provider by the state of Missouri to provide developmental intervention and evaluation services through the Missouri First Steps program.
