Animal Assisted Play and Learning

Animal Assisted Play and Learning Session for Families

Whether you are looking for ways to boost your child’s speech, language and communication skills, or just seeking an alternative family activity, NAATA is ready to help in a way that is fun and effective. Contact us to book a time slot.

Activities are delivered at NAATA’s base in Wallsend where our animals are ready to meet you. Home visiting is not currently available due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Contact us to arrange a time to visit then let us take care of the rest.  We will plan a selection of short, fun activities, however on the day, we will be ready to follow your child’s mood and interests. There is no pressure placed upon children or animals to take part in a certain way. Experience tells us that a flexible, relaxed, playful approach works best in all situations.

Your session will last for up to an hour. Before it ends we can talk about ways you might continue to boost your child’s learning and development at home. Each session can accommodate between 1 and 3 children. It’s up to you  to consider whether it would be most beneficial to experience the animals 1 to 1 or to have friends or siblings join in the fun.
