Practicum Program

Arion hosts dozens of different practicum students each year who can benefit from observing or participating in the various and programs and therapies happening at the farm. We are a multi generational facility so there are multiple fields of study covered within our facility.

Participants have an opportunity to observe and even participate in programs with the clients they are seeking to learn from. We have a variety of different programs offered by other professionals or farm recreational activities that cater to a broad demographic including those with special needs, seniors and vulnerable youth.
