Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine parental perceptions of the impact of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy (EAAT) on the listening and spoken language skills of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). Parents of children who are DHH and communicate through listening and spoken language completed an online survey pertaining to their child’s hearing loss, their involvement with EAAT, and the impact that the parents felt EAAT had on their children. The results of this study indicated that parents observed a positive impact on their children’s listening and spoken language due to their involvement with EAAT.
