Green Park School, based in Wolverhampton are a special educational needs school, who have seen positive changes in the emotional and social interaction of the children in their care since attending the Animal Assisted Intervention Programme. Pupils undertook the 'Anxiety and Low Mood' six week programme. Teachers noticed a considerable difference in the mood of the children, the development of their social skills in the community within a couple of weeks of attending our sessions, with some children now recognising and processing emotions.

Feedback from Teachers: 

We have really seen Alysa's communication skills blossom over the programme, she has been independent in responding to questions and communicating her choices. 'I AM HAPPY!'

Rania was a little anxious at first but gradually over the programme, she has become more confident and is now stroking the rabbit and bearded dragon.

This programme has had a massive impact on Sukhpreet's communication and engagement. He is focused and independently accessed the animals. He communicated his preference of the bearded dragon and communicated that the sessions made him happy.
