Riding on the Autism Spectrum
The Miracle of Equine-Assisted Therapy
Discover how Claudine Pelletier-Milet’s horses open doors for individuals with autism
and autism spectrum disorders. With the help of her equine friends, Claudine finds
a way inside the closed world of the autistic individual.
Often at a speed that astounds parents and family members, her students begin to
look up, speak out, and “own” themselves and their relationships with the horses and
people around them.
For the last 15 years, Claudine Pelletier-Milet has worked outside the mainstream debate about autism and its causes, creating a magical world in which her horses and ponies help her autistic students develop on their own time in a joyful and relaxed atmosphere.
