Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) provides occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech therapists with an additional method of reaching therapy goals. It is a goal-oriented intervention in which an animal with specific characteristics becomes an integral component of treatment.
We use different domesticated animals with various talents from our animal-assisted therapy facilities in our treatment.
The objective of animal-assisted therapy is the improvement of neurological impairments, such as perception, movement and speech. The animal-assisted methods promote patients’ contact and communication abilities.
The therapy also helps structure the day, motivates patients for therapy and improves their psychological stability.
