PATH Intl. Works to Demolish Waiting List

Posted by By at 24 December, at 19 : 44 PM Print

Denver—Whether it’s at the airport, in traffic or in line to see Santa Claus, no one likes to wait. As Veruca said in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, “I want it now!”
At PATH Intl., we know how difficult it is for those with special needs to have to wait for something they know could help them, something that brings them happiness as well as improved health. Yet, for many, being on a waiting list to receive equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) from a PATH Intl. Member Center is a reality.
According to the most recent PATH Intl. statistics, more than 5,200 individuals are on waiting lists at 315 PATH Intl. Member Centers. That’s 5,200 individuals waiting to receive the physical benefits therapeutic horsemanship provides, such as improved balance, breathing and circulation, and increased muscle strength, and the emotional benefits such as better social skills, improved self-esteem and reduced depression and anxiety.
PATH Intl. is the credentialing organization for the accredited centers that provide EAAT programing and for the certified professionals who work directly with the participants and their families. Through onsite workshops, instructors gain the skills and knowledge necessary to teach to a wide range of special needs. Read more about PATH Intl. Certifications. Key to the credentialing process is the PATH Intl. Standards for Certification and Accreditation manual, which details voluntary standards for the EAAT industry, necessary to ensure the safety of everyone involved, including our equine partners.
In 2014, PATH Intl. certified 415 instructors. It is clear, however, that more instructors are needed in order to reduce—or eliminate—the waiting lists at PATH Intl. Member Centers. Your gift to PATH Intl. can help certify more instructors or be used toward scholarships for them to attend continuing education sessions at PATH Intl. Conferences. As one recent conference attendee said on her evaluation form for “The Art of Teaching” session, “These types of sessions are what help me think out of the box. Anything you can offer to support our being better instructors is appreciated.” sep 5, 2012 – buy brand prozac online . buy prozac online no prescription needed. prozac zoloft . order fluoxetine no prescription. prozac coupon. fucidin online buy estrace – lowest prices ! new york (abstract not furnished) ; the race factor in gastro- intestinal disease, estrace cream by j. w. byers, m. d., charlotte,

The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International® (PATH Intl®.) was formed in 1969 to promote safety and optimal outcomes in equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) for individuals with special needs. At 852 member centers, more than 58,000 children and adults may find improved health, wellness and a sense of pride and independence through involvement with horses. Therapeutic horsemanship at member centers may include hippotherapy, equine-facilitated mental health, driving, interactive vaulting, trail riding, competition, ground work and stable management. Through a wide variety of educational resources, the association helps individuals start and maintain successful EAAT programs. There are nearly 53,000 volunteers, 4,544 instructors, 7,733 equines and thousands of contributors from all over the world helping people at PATH Intl. Member Centers.
