Improving lives through animal therapy

PRUs and Special Needs

Animals are a great way of engaging young people – particularly those with behavioural and/or learning difficulties.  Our approach is very much one-to-one and is always based on detailed background information from teachers to ensure that each pupil gets a highly differentiated learning experience.

Each child is encouraged to interact on their own level with the ZooLab ranger. It's all about positive reinforcement, with feedback from the ranger at all times, as part of stimulating and exciting workshops and individual learning experiences.
