We learn more about this Council and how it reshapes services to ASD individuals with the Medical Director of the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities, Dr. Allen Brenzel, a Lexington Pediatrician and Child Psychiatrist. Kate Lochte opens the discussion by asking how this council differs from its predecessor, created during the administration of Governor Ernie Fletcher in 2005.</p><p> Thu, 27 Feb 2014 20:42:07 +0000 Kate Lochte 38958 at http://wkms.org Kentucky Reshapes Services for Autism Spectrum Disorder Special Needs Folks Demonstrate Therapeutic Riding Saturday http://wkms.org/post/special-needs-folks-demonstrate-therapeutic-riding-saturday <div>HORSES, Inc&#39;s name is actually an acronym: &nbsp;Helping Others Reach Success using Equine Services. &nbsp;It offers therapeutic horseback riding classes for people with physical, mental or emotional challenges. &nbsp;Today we meet one of its Board Members, John Maldaner, to speak about the Boots &amp; Bridles Competition Saturday at Carson Park in Paducah. &nbsp;The all-day event is actually a celebration of the riders with a couple of participation events as well.</div><p> Tue, 08 Oct 2013 16:19:53 +0000 Kate Lochte 35546 at http://wkms.org Special Needs Folks Demonstrate Therapeutic Riding Saturday
