Autism Angels is an amazing charity in the Harrogate area, offering vital support to children, young people and families who are affected by Autism, in a wonderful countryside environment with horses and nature.
Autism Angels specializes in working with families who have diverse or additional needs, in order to give them the opportunities to succeed and thrive in an environment which supports and enables their learning and development.
We work with horses to support learning and this is known as “Equine Facilitated Learning”. This creates ‘real life’ scenarios that can then be practiced and worked through. When this is combined with Autism Angels coaching approach, it creates a very powerful platform to illicit change and empower people to live their best life yet. This approach is known as Equine Facilitated Coaching. These methods are at the core of the many exciting and fun activities offered to local families. Activities include; Family Fun Days, Animal Care Clubs, Back to School with Confidence Days, Mentoring Programmes, Parent support sessions, Saturday Clubs, Riding Therapy, Summer Camps and so much more.
