This blog post is following a day of fun and exciting hippotherapy sessions. The leprechauns were at the farm bright and early to create some fun speech and language activities for our patients on St. Patrick’s Day! Boy did these activities get our patients talking!
Creating a hunt for shamrocks and sensory based activities was easy and fun. There were many opportunities for speech and language practice and everyone including the staff and horses had a great time.
When doing activities such as these be sure to expose the horses to them before hand so they know what to expect!
Take a look at our St. Patrick’s Day speech and Language activities:
