Autism resources are limited in Ecuador, making it difficult for people to receive effective therapy. Kawallu Hippotherapy Center provides hippotherapy treatment to clients with different emotional, mental, and physical disorders. We worked with Kawallu to recommend features for their hippotherapy arena and multisensory environment (MSE) for the treatment of clients with autism. Through interviews with hippotherapy and MSE experts, we determined critical features to incorporate into these spaces. We analyzed the data and researched 20 features to incorporate at Kawallu. We presented Kawallu with a guidebook containing three options for each feature varying in price and quality to best suit the needs of clients with autism.
