Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is a type of therapy that involves animals as a form of treatment. The goal of AAT is to improve a patient’s social, emotional, or cognitive functioning.
If you have a child or loved one who is physically or mentally challenged, Animal Assisted Therapy just may be the thing for them. Caring for a pet has an overall positive impact on a child’s mind and body.
Animal Therapy need not only be for those kids with lifelong illnesses but can also be very therapeutic for children who are recovering from accidents and poor health.
