Programación virtual

"Este verano he podido ver que los estudiantes que tienen dificultades para relacionarse con sus compañeros y que en su mayoría son no verbales muestran un progreso tremendo. Mientras trabajan con los caballos, han podido relacionarse adecuadamente con otros (adultos y compañeros) y también hablar, como dar órdenes a los caballos y también cantar para el caballo. Es un placer ver la alegría que estos niños expresan durante esta increíble experiencia que pueden tener mientras están en Reins of Life ".
