La Ventana Program activities

Horse based activities

The equine, horse based, activities, have proven positive effects on children with special abilities. They learn to follow instructions when grooming, walking with or guiding the horse.

Horse therapy is provided at a highly subsidized price (around 35 USD on Saturdays, 40 USD on weekdays).

The group sessions on Saturdays can be complemented with individual sessions during weekdays.

In almost all cases, the parents note improvements, in the majority of cases, significant improvements in the development of their child. Register your child in the program on a Saturday at 9 am and bring a prescription from your child's physician recommending horse therapy.

 

Music

We use techniques that gradually makes it possible for autistic children to participate. They normally react at noise, but we engage with them to help them overcome this reaction. This helps them live through in their daily life noises without reverting into crisis.

Fun-practice and art

Being in the middle of nature, in an atmosphere of freedom, joy, love, relaxes the children and they enjoy it. In Art, they develop their creativity, playing with colors, forms and shapes. We use often use nature in the art participants create.

Zoo-interaction between the children and the animals

We call zoo-interaction the engagement of our children and youth with the animals in our farm. They establish a relationship, and for instance, those with sensorial oversensitivity, gradually overcome their fear as they feel, touch and smell the animals in a natural way. They learn to respect and care for others. As the animals do not discriminate against them, they receive their love and feel secure. They also care for and grow plants in the greenhouse.

Today the farm counts with hens, ducks, geese, peacocks, donkeys, horses, guinea pigs, llamas, sheep, cows, a bull, pigs, Labrador dogs and many more animals.

Field trips that transform!

When you come to La Ventana de los Cielos, you are not just seeing and learning about animals. It teaches you so much more, and in an atmosphere of peace. For this reason we believe La Ventana is the ideal destination for educational field trips with a twist: your perspective changes when you learn to relate with persons with special abilities.

We have a series of field visit packages below.
