What is Bit-By-Bit Therapy?
Bit-By-Bit Therapy was founded in 2002 by Susan March, RPT and a dedicated group of passionate parents.
As a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization, Bit-By-Bit logs over 500 Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy sessions per month, some include the use of Hippotherapy.
The term hippotherapy refers to how occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology professionals use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems to achieve functional outcomes. In conjunction with the affordances of the equine environment and other treatment strategies, hippotherapy is part of a patient’s integrated plan of care. Bit-By-Bit also offers an Adaptive Riding Program called Horses for Heroes free of charge to US veterans with disabilities.
Bit-By-Bit is a PATH Accredited Therapeutic Riding Center and an American Hippotherapy Association Registered Facility, specializing in speech, occupational and physical therapies.
Visitors and patients to Bit-By-Bit find a peaceful working barn, green pastures, small animals for petting and a barn full of highly trained and lifelong-loving equine partners.
