About

The American Autism Association is an organization dedicated to helping families and individuals affected by autism, while increasing awareness of the varied difficulties individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder face. Our organization offers educational resources, personal support for families, and therapeutic athletic programs.

We are currently looking for photographers for our Saddle Up for Autism program. This program is a low cost horse therapy for children with autism hosted in Homestead, Florida. It offers the kids a chance to develop an emotional bond with the horse, a bond difficult for most children with autism to make with people. This therapy also allows the kids to experience sensory integration by riding and feeling the horse trot and maneuver through an obstacle course. The children are able to take direction by leading the horse and give the horse direction, allowing a chance for communication and verbal engagement in a fun way.

Our Summer 2018 weekly program begins on Saturday July 28, and will continue every Saturday until August 25. The total participants in the class are 10 children. And it would be ideal to have a volunteer photographer at every session.
