A child-centered approach that integrates movement, intrinic motivation & creating the right environment in order to enhance communication, sensory functioning, social cognitive development, and academics.
HB IDaL System offers a variety of sensory integration & kinetic learning approaches such as horses, surfing, regular play equipment, car, train and others. All modules convey the basic methodology of HB IDaL and then specialize in addressing sensory challenges, communication, learning, and social cognitive development.
Participants in any Introduction module can easily switch from one type of kinetic learning approach to another e.g. start with HBM 1 then transfer to HBL.
HBL is the overarching Module that sets all the groundwork for all other Modules and goes into detail of how to teach kinetic learners which most autistic, ADD, ADHD and children with other neuro-psychiatric challenges are.
Anybody interested in teaching through movement can learn our easy 6-stage process and can easily implement the methods at home, school or in a therapy setting.
HBM & HBS (and other modules to come) then apply the approach systemized in HBL while specializing in certain types of kinetic learning “tool” i.e. farm living and the horse or the ocean and surf boards.
For any of our Modules setting up the right environment is the most important aspect of it all.
We strongly suggest to participate in HBL 1 before choosing your field of specialization e.g HBL2/3 or HBM or HBS.

The Horse Boy Method is not intended or offered as a cure for autism. Ameliorative effects may or may not occur. The method was found to be very useful with Rupert's son Rowan and with other children subsequently. We simply follow what worked for Rowan and others but there is no guarantee of outcome.
By participating in a Horse Boy Method session or training or applying them at home you accept full personal responsibility for any injury or death that can follow any equine activity. The Horse Boy Foundation accepts no liability.
Just as a reminder… The Horse Boy Method Training is an intro into the methods including but not limited to back-riding. We do NOT suggest that you go home and start back-riding with children. Practice, practice, practice! Seek professional advice from your trainers to deepen your skills as a rider and horseman/woman. Take lessons! Again, after the training you are probably NOT ready to ride with a child. Practice until you, your horses and your property are ready for back-riding! HORSE BOY LLC, IT’S MEMBERS, OFFICERS, TRAINERS ETC ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOU BACKRIDING WITH A CHILD OR OTHER PERSON.
We do suggest you and anybody you work with wears protective gear like protective riding helmets etc.
