Unique Programs for Autistic Adults and Children

Wilderwood’s equine-assisted programs are an innovative and integrative approach designed for autistic adults and children (aged 8 and up) to strengthen authentic self-perception, self-possibility, and self-realization through mind/body interoceptive and somatic understanding combined with the philosophy of Hautism, which embraces and celebrates the innate connection between horses and autistic people.

Wilderwood also rescues unwanted horses, provides them a lifetime loving home, and educates the community about horses and autism.

In 2022, Wilderwood’s programs will be offered throughout the year in a compressed, immersive format for adults and twelve-week sessions for children (aged 8 and up).

The outcomes for Wilderwood’s programs include measurable improvement in:

  • Self-awareness, confidence, and connection with others
  • Positive emotional regulation and management
  • Reduced emotional distress and anxiety
  • Achievement of personal goals and aspirations
  • Improved appreciation of mind/body interoception
