Notes

EAQ Grass Roots offers equine assisted learning sessions for children and young people who: • are usually not in full time mainstream education • may have been excluded from school • will benefit from a different approach to learning • need different levels of support • may have complex diagnoses including learning difficulties, social, emotional and behavioural needs, ASD, PDA, school refusal. ​ Our facilitators, with our horses and dogs, lead sessions using specialist communication techniques that allow a learner to move into self-directed and experiential learning. During our sessions we provide the opportunity for learners to have experiences that enhance academic learning, self-awareness, reflection and energy level regulation. We adopt a person-centred facilitation style in our sessions with individualised aims and objectives for each learner to be able to meet their own needs. ​Our sessions predominantly take place in the outdoors, with some undercover and indoor spaces too.
