NAATA offers animal assisted education or therapies for children and young people led by a Speech and Language Therapist specialising in early years and foundation stage. We welcome enquiries from partners supporting children’s well-being, communication skills and early language and literacy. Our therapy dog and other small animals are specially selected and reared and enjoy interacting with people. We hold all of the necessary registrations and insurances. Whilst we are always learning from models of best practice, we also enjoy collaborating and innovating to discover new potential so please talk to us about your ideas.
