Narrative

Wellspring Farm Learning Center (WFLC):  enhances the lives of special needs children and adults by providing a unique, active, outdoor horse farm and environmental learning for participants to strengthen life skills, engage in outdoor enrichment and participate in therapeutic activities under the supervision of highly qualified professionals. The student acquires a sense of hope and purpose.

Trauma Evals. EMDR Therapies - 10 Licensed Clinical Therapists.

Behavioral Programming and Outdoor Enrichment:  WFLC’s unique approach to experiential learning, through a myriad of sensory experiences throughout the Wellspring campus, creates a warm and caring atmosphere for each individual. Each of the Center’s individual barns and learning stations provide building blocks for students to grow in confidence as each new task is mastered or attempted. The grazing fields, woodland trails and sanctuary, coupled with the “magic woodland area,” bring enjoyment and offer challenges to the various riding, environmental and therapeutic experiences, with general joy experienced by each participating student.

We are credentialled under the MBHP through MASS. Health.  We are an out-patient group practice also medicare credentialled + we accept private insurances.
