  1. Is this Equine-Facilitated Therapy scientifically proven yet or is this another Facilitated Communication (FC) fad or “craze?” Anyone who is serious for the advocacy of innocent children who have autism and the parents who often seek answers in a world that cannot always provide those answers, this technique in addition to FC should be critically researched before accepting it as a “cure.” Just because an isolated group of individuals claim it is effective doesn’t mean that it is.

    This worries me…I hope for the sake of these children that this technique is more scientifically proven and that many controlled experiments will attest to its potential effectiveness.

  2. Looking for information on horse therapy for class project.

  3. Equine facilitated psychotherapy, like any other tool, is only as effective as the practitioner. Of utmost importance is the ability to understand and reflect back to the patient, the language and behavior of the horse. Only then does equine facilitated psychotherapy truly become magic.
