Animal Assisted Life Skills Program Come have fun with animals while gaining valuable life skills! The animal assisted life skills program is designed to help children in an individual or group based counseling setting which will focus on all aspects of age appropriate life skills. The sessions will go over an array of different skills and animal aspects such as:
Animal education/Ranch and animal care
The price for the individual sessions is $50 for one hour. A treatment plan will be included for your child so that you can track progress towards individual goals.
The primary objective is to have fun while learning new, healthy coping and social skills. These skills will help our children learn to cope with a myriad of emotions and challenges including anger, anxiety, depression, ADHD. They will also gain improved social skills, communication skills, task management, focus, listening skills, better self-expression, and self-esteem. The students will learn responsibility through animal care and knowledge of animals through use of animal interactions. Our students will gain the ability to trust and earn trust, experience peer/community support and much, much more.
"We love this place. We need to get back there. My daughter absolutely loves going there. She is autistic and the staff there always makes it a great time when she is there. She loves playing with the pigs and the donkeys. Next goal is to do the horses. Thank you TRAK for having a place for us to enjoy the animals and have therapy at the same time. K.R., Tucson."
