NAATA (Northern Animal Assisted Therapies and Activities) is a local company ran by Wallsend resident Lesley Forrester. Lesley is a Speech and Language Therapist, as well as an Animal Assisted Therapist, and wants to show the world how amazing human-animal connections can be in helping children’s development. Today we will hear from Lesley’s feathered friend Tina, who is not your average chicken! Be sure to tune in over the next few weeks as we will be introducing you to more of the gang from NAATA. How exciting!
