|Incorporating Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) as an additional intervention within a child’s educational plan is a fairly new concept and Nola loves her job. Nola’s purpose is to work with children who are physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabled, as well as others who can benefit from the unique qualities that interaction with an animal can provide. AAT is goal-directed - there is a specific end in mind. Nola will help motivate the achievement of a wide variety of goals and objectives within a school environment. You can visit Nola's website here.________________________________________________________________________|
