Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

The benefits of hippotherapy include posture, dynamic motor skills, sensory processing, and psychosocial factors. Debuse, Gibb, and Chandler (2009) suggested limited evidence supporting hippotherapy; no common assessment tool exists. This presentation will share research about a newly developed assessment.
