#1 Setting the Environment

We suggest that Maelle’s parents provide an environment in which she can develop her own interests. If she likes to be outdoors, we recommend you to find activities she likes besides reading and writing. You may try out Nature Walk to encourage her inner development.

#3 Horse Riding

 It is good that Maelle is interested in horse riding because horses are often used in animal therapy. Animals have a healing effect that leads to emotional stability. Although they don't speak the same language, they can sense something about people and it’s helpful for people to express and release their emotions.
