DENVER, CO — In early 2017, the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) launched an outreach campaign for special education teachers to heighten awareness of EAAT and the crucial role PATH Intl. Member Centers and Professionals play in the industry. Through education, the objective is to facilitate connections between special education teachers and their local PATH Intl. Centers and Professionals to have them consider EAAT a viable activity for their students.

"EAAT and IEPs — Opening the Gate to Collaboration" is part of a free three-part series presented by PATH Intl. Certified Registered Instructor and University of Oklahoma Zarrow Center for Learning Enrichment doctoral scholar Andrea Suk, M.S.Ed.

Topics covered in the live Oct. 16, webinar included trends, goals, policies and terminology to help facilitate the connection to local schools and special educators. The webinar was recorded and is available in the PATH Intl. online store, free of charge Pathintl.org.
