There are many ways to get involved with our Mission.
We are currently re-writing the middle school (13 to 16 year) math and science curriculum for kinetic learning in partnership with University of Osnabrueck, Germany. These modules and lesson plans will be made available for schools, home schoolers, and parents online and through live workshops, both for special and general ed. Help us revolutionize the current learning system to help train the leaders of tomorrow. Find out more under current activities.

What Autists say about our program:
Any donation large and small is much appreciated. Even more effective is to choose to donate a small amount monthly as continued giving. Many of our larger supporters run matching grant challenges through out the year, so your donation is likely to be doubled. Also check with your employer as many larger employers offer donation matching for their employees. Please click here to donate now. You can also mail us a check to:

Get Trained as Movement Method Mentor or Horse Boy Method Practitioner
Through the training wing of our organization we offer workshops and online courses. Our mission is to serve 1 million families and kids by 2021 which can only be accomplished by training many other Mentors and Practitioners in the Method.
Mentors are people trained to implement Movement Method at home, in a school or in a clinical environment. Practitioners are people trained to implement Horse Boy Method in therapeutic riding environments most Practitioners also are trained in Movement Method to understand the scientific background better and to ensure that even when the child is not on the horse learning still occurs.
