Our innovative project using aquaponics creates academic learning opportunities, independence and a deeper understanding of nature. The animals help with the therapeutic approach to education in conjunction with AAT which is successful for many conditions including Autism, ADD, ADHD, anxiety and depression. AAT lowers blood pressure, increases oxytocin, aids concentration, calms, builds confidence and social interaction.
Animal Assisted Therapy sessions
Activity Days – archery, music workshops & cookery
Workshops for Educators and Parents
Working in partnership with schools & groups
Our little Club maybe small but we do have a massive reach, we were interviewed for the Open University Course on Autism to help others understand our methods and approach. The Little Explorers has been working in conjunction with the Leicester University on the Dream Project to understand the ethics behind using robotics to help Autistic children and their families. More recently we have advised the National Space Centre about how to create Autism Friendly Events there. We are always open to new ideas and approaches and will support research projects around the world.
