Devery Prince Insurance Agency and Equine Assisted Therapy Center Partner to Bring Hope, Self-Improvement and Confidence to Local Children
Devery Prince Insurance Agency connects with Benefe Equine Assisted Therapy Center to form an initiative to help local children improve physical and behavioral needs.
Our agency understands the issues and opportunities available in our local communities, which is why it’s important to us to announce this excited news and get others involved
Devery Prince Insurance Agency of South Central Alaska, announced its partnership with Benefe Equine Assisted Therapy Center to help local children with physical and behavioral needs. Committed to impacting the community and building relationships with local families, Devery Prince Agency is looking to help children experience the healing effects of equine assisted therapy through the new campaign.
The first cause supported by the Agency’s initiative is for Michael and Tim Pettit, two energetic adopted brothers struggling with physical challenges. Michael, a horse fanatic, faces daily struggles from hand-eye coordination issues, ADD, ADHD and ODD. Professionals said they saw improvement in Michael’s skills and behavior in a matter of a few lessons.
The experts at Benefe attest that the physical motions employed for slow deliberate movements when working with a horse are very beneficial for a boy like Michael who needs to exercise his coordination. They allegedly teach him body awareness, bodily self-control, and physical strength.
According to Madeline Vann, MPH, a contributing writer to Everyday Health, “The attachment that can form between children with ADHD and horses used in equine therapy is one of the benefits of this approach, and working the horses has a calming effect, helping children to manage ADHD symptoms,” Vann said.
Devery Prince, founder of Devery Prince Insurance Agency, said partnering with Benefe was a no-brainer, especially after seeing the incredible effects just a few lessons can do for children just like Michael. “Our agency understands the issues and opportunities available in our local communities, which is why it’s important to us to announce this excited news and get others involved,” Prince said.
Benefe Equine Assisted Therapy Center uses experimental learning approaches, which allow individuals to challenge boundaries, overcome fear and develop self-confidence to conquer obstacles that surround their lives. Equine Assisted Learning helps address a variety of human developmental needs including behavioral issues, ADD, depression, anxiety, communication challenges and more, its website said.
Devery Prince Agency hopes to raise $900 for Michael and Tim through a donation page, now live at http://www.gofundme.com/6khhqw. The Agency launches this campaign, inaugurating a community involvement campaign, raising awareness and funds for a different cause every 30-60 days.
