If you read this blog, then you know that I am a big supporter of therapy animals for special needs kids. Different animals go through different kinds of preparation to work with special needs kids. You can read about the difference between companion, therapy and guide animals in this post.
I have had the chance to connect with a lot of families and therapists on my Special Learning House Instagram Account on Instagram. Instagram is a wonderful place to exchange in a non-formal way. I particularly love sharing therapy and project ideas in my Instagram Stories. (Come follow Special Learning House on Instagram if we haven’t connected there yet.)
Since creating the SLH account, I have discovered some wonderful therapy animals who are doing great work with special needs kids.
So, without further ado, I bring you :
Murray the owl
Isn’t he the cutest?
Winnie the Therapy Dog
I love seeing Winnie’s daily photos.
The adorable donkeys at The Donkey Sanctuary in Birmingham, Alabama
Did you know that therapy donkey existed?
Monty the therapy goat at Dedham Therapy Farm in Essex
If you have a therapy animal at home, snap a photo and tag #speciallearninghouse on Instagram.
We love these therapy animals for special needs kids! Do you have a therapy animal at home for your child? Are you interested in learning more?
