As a parent of a child with exceptional needs, I know it can be really difficult to find programming your child can be successful in. Team sports are too competitive. Individual sports not engaging enough. And some coaches/ facilitators just don't have the knowledge of the way your child needs to be supported. With 15 years of social work experience plus a lot of life lessons, I founded New Leaf Farms so that our son would have a place to be himself in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Our program for exceptional kids is based around the specific needs of your child. We have worked with children with ASD, ADHD, SPD, anxiety, depression, PTSD and many undiagnosed challenges as well.
Animals provide clear, immediate feedback, allowing children to learn solid social and communication skills. Animals also live in the moment. They do not hold grudges or make judgments, and hey, they're pretty cool to be around!
Connect with us to discuss you child's needs. New Leaf Farms offers a supportive environment for exceptional kids and their parents/ caregivers.
It is okay to have big feelings here.
