The Horse Boy" follows one Texas couple and their autistic son as they trek on horseback through Outer Mongolia to try to treat his condition with shamanic healing. The film touches many topics: autism, relationships between humans and animals and humans and nature, cultural differences and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or "neurotypical"), and the nature of healing.

SNACK provides unique programming to support children on the spectrum and their families . . . From SNACK’s website:

"SNACK after school and weekend programs, geared toward children ages 3-18 with special needs, are designed and staffed to address challenging behavioral issues, increase skill levels and promote improved social interaction. SNACK provides a variety of group and individual activities including sports, art, music, yoga, movement, drama and swimming. Our high ratio of student to staff (2:1), class size limit (maximum 8 per class), and use of the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to manage behavior and provide reinforcement, enables children who participate to make progress. SNACK provides children and their parents with a nurturing environment all too often unavailable to those most in need of these services. At SNACK, you can be confident that your children are safe, happy, and having fun!"
