Every child has the right to achieve his or her highest level of physical function and psychological well-being. This can best be achieved by the child, the therapist, and the family or support group working together toward agreed upon therapy goals specific to each individual. Greater results are reached when therapeutic activity is fun and meaningful to the individual and the family. It is also our belief that the world of nature (animals and the outdoors) can provide a powerful setting in which to achieve traditional clinical goals. This belief is the focus of activity used at the Triangle Therapy facility.
