My daughter has Austism. I have taken my daughter Nature,s Edge for the last year or so. I love the staff and the philosopy they have. They are professional and very caring. They will find what works for the client. Not afraid to think outside of the box. Very positive and determined to help each and every client and meet them where they are at.

We are very pleased with Nature's Edge and their style of speech therapy. Using nature as a base has helped give our 4 1/2 year old grandson the enthusiasm to participate and to learn, and we are happy to see progress. At Nature's Edge you will find friendly and knowledgeable staff using animals and a rural setting to deliver therapy. We see this as very positive and are happy to recommend Nature's Edge.

Nature's Edge was first brought to our attention in June 2016, in hopes for my 9 year old to start therapy at the center. What a wonderful place!! The staff and volunteers are awesome, caring people. They make you feel welcome as if you are family. My daughter has been in speech and OT therapy since July and I can already see the improvement. She loves the animals, Peppy the ferret being her favorite. She actually looks forward to going to therapy on a weekly basis. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great therapy experience.

love this place cant thank them enough. My son has SPD, SMD, and ELD. Since my son has been recieving treatment at Natures Edge he has accomplished so much. When he first started he only spoke a few words at a time now he us able to talk in full sentences. The hippo Therapy is great my son is more aware of his body and can look at you when you speak to him. Could go on and on about them but I really think you should see for yourself just how wonderful they are.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

We have not yet been to Natures Edge, but we are very much looking forward to it. We have worked with some of the therapists and love them. They do awesome work. Excited about our visit next month, Hope it inspires my daughter to be a therapist and help these children with so many needs. And working with the animals would be an added bonus.

Natures edge was a wonderful place for our son to receive therapy! Our son went from 2 word phrases to 4-5 word sentences over a summer of therapy from April to November. All of the staff we worked with were caring and professional. We highly recommend this place for therapy.

I got the honor and privilege of working as a volunteer intern this summer at Nature's Edge Therapy Center, Inc. for university credit. I am an undergraduate student at Colorado State University studying Equine Science and Business Administration with a Pre-Occupational Therapy focus. I hope to one day work as an Occupational Therapist specializing in Hippotherapy.

When I began my internship, I was immediately given great trust and responsibility; the staff is incredibly friendly and function like a well-oiled machine. The teamwork demonstrated among this group of professionals is unparalleled. As a volunteer, I was welcomed as part of this family-minded team and was constantly encouraged to challenge myself and share my ideas. Nature's Edge feels safe and comforting, providing an excellent atmosphere for therapy and an engaging environment for learning.

The experiences and wisdom I have gained from my time as an intern with Nature's Edge can only be described as life-changing. I was not simply "the intern"; I was a member of the team and part of the Nature's Edge family. I was given the tremendous opportunity to make meaningful connections with both staff and the clients I worked with throughout my time at Nature's Edge. In seeing the hope and happiness this center brings to its clients and their families, I have found passion and motivation to provide the same level of expert care in my future career in Hippotherapy. Truly an inspiring place!

This summer was the first year I came to volunteer here and I have to say, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Everyone at Nature's Edge is so wonderful! They always let you know how grateful they are for everyone's hard work. I am super glad I came to Nature's Edge and I will definitely be coming back!

As a professional, I have referred several children with severe needs to Nature's Edge Therapy Center. I am so amazed by the impact their unique services have on children who have struggled to respond to more traditional therapies. The staff and volunteers are very friendly and welcoming. They do a great job of making children and families comfortable and relaxed at their facility. I highly recommend Nature's Edge to others!

My daughter has made tremendous gains since starting HIPPO Therapy with Becky, Laura and Courtney. They have also been able to teach our family ways to understand and work with our daughter who has sensory processing disorder. We cannot THANK Nature's Edge Therapy enough for all of your dedication
