Stay Pony cuddles – 31.5. – 3. 6. 2015, Ostravice, Beskydy
In Ostravice, in guest house Sluníčko and Měsíček, the second time at the invitation FOR HELP met12 families with autistic children and their siblings.
The program of the stay was demanding and, with a few days off, when we write these lines, we can say that even successful.
Our prepared program has made it possible for children not only to have interesting and new things, but also to allow their parents to relax.
At the time when parents were on lectures about developing a child with PAS and getting acquainted with the knowledge of the nutrition of children with PAS or relaxing at an arttherapy workshop, there was a program for children. The program was colorful and entertaining and prepared so that children with PAS took away many new experiences, experiences.
A team of professional assistants and lecturers has created a great atmosphere for the family, comfort and tranquility.
Every child had an assistant. The therapist and chief assistant supervised the expertise and quality of their work.
The most important event, included in the stay, was “Pony cuddles”, and this activity was really exceptionally successful.
The Muchovice Farm has lent us horses and is well-prepared for a ride with children.
The kids were on horseback, the ride was safe, we walked through a beautiful forest around the creek, and all of them went under the supervision of PAS children and with the help of professional assistants.
The beautiful Beskydy countryside and the atmosphere of “Pony cuddles” tune everyone into a soothing and peaceful mood.
The program also included treasure hunt, games and masks, visited and enjoyed the pool, toast, toast and meet.
Each of the activities was carried out in a spirit of friendly and cheerful cohesion, which is extremely important for children and their families.
This year, we asked our parents to evaluate the stay and we are happy that their reactions were very favorable. Thanks to parents for their answers, they are a valuable guide for us to do next, and even better.
Dear Sponsors, dear friends, thanks to you, the children and families could experience this wonderful stay. Changing the environment, new encounters, a close relationship that children experienced with horses, all made it easy for children to learn new skills – to lead horses, to hold bridles, to toast, to play games.
