Research 

RTT is one of two centers who are host sites for a NIH funded research study examining the physiological changes that occur in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Two groups of participants -- a therapeutic riding group and a barn activity/control group -- set us off in grand fashion on June 8th and 9th! The therapeutic riding group comes on Tuesday afternoons and the barn activity/control group comes on Wednesday afternoons. We have two fabulous instructors, Cynde Putney and Lorena Coffin, leading the lessons, and a dedicated, passionate group of volunteers ( working in conjunction with staff  from The Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI).
