Linda Chapman, COTA/L, Hippotherapist
Linda’s OTA degree and Hippotherapist certification give her the ideal combination of skills necessary to provide a unique therapy. Hippotherapy utilizes the movements of the horse to engage sensory, muscular, and brain activity of a child. This whole-body activity can then be transferred into functional tasks.
Having worked at a therapeutic horse-riding center for many years, LifeSkills was the perfect match for Linda. She enjoys having fun with kids and the horses, while at the same time providing the benefits of therapy.
