Experience Learning Support With Animals (ELSA) is a program for both special needs and children on the autism spectrum. Their mission is to service special needs individuals and those on the spectrum by pairing them with horses in a ranch setting. The programs they offer build confidence, social skills, and sensory awareness.
Watch as executive director and founder, Susan, describes the types of programs ELSA offers and how families can get involved too. ELSA is not only for the child but is a great way for families to have fun, respite and rejuvenation.
Autism is a developmental disorder that affects one in 110 children. Those are frightening odds, and in order to provide assistance and care to children and families living with autism, we need to incite the government for help and raise awareness for this important cause.

Though autism awareness and advocacy is on the rise, there is still much that remains unknown about this elusive disorder. That's why we need stronger governmental participation to continue to fight on behalf of children and families.
