2021 was the start of a NIH funded research study that was delayed due to COVID.  This multi-site study is examining the physiological changes in children with autism in two groups—a therapeutic riding group and a barn activity (control) group. RTT’s first cohort ran for 10 weeks the summer of 2021 and the second ran in the fall 2021 with another cohort set to begin in the spring of 2022.

“This study is exciting because it’s not often we have a chance to try to understand why something works.”     

MMCRI Faculty Scientist Mathew Siegel, M.D

 “We are honored be involved in this ground breaking research.”
