Dean Janet Powell, Dr. Laura de Ghetaldi and Marilyn Huerta had the opportunity to tour TERI Inc.’s Therapeutic Equestrian Program in San Marcos this past week, lead by Director Greg Snaer and Jenell Tiffany. Lots of great collaborations are in the works!
“At TERI’s Therapeutic Equestrian Program, our students face many challenges within a range of physical, mental and emotional disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Brain Injury, and Seizure Disorders. The objective of our program is unique in that it aims to address not only a wide array of these disabilities, but also a greater influence of Autism & Autistic Spectrum Disorders, as well as learning disabilities. In conjunction with our highly qualified staff, the modern horse also takes on the role of therapist, and as such, all lend their own unique perspective and design to join with other TERI programs.”
