TETP aims to provide autistic children with an opportunity to develop their social interaction and emotional skills by using elephants as a working partner with occupational therapists, thus showcasing Thailand as a pioneering leader in the support of research into alternative therapy solutions. The elephant therapy programme is available in one, two and twelve day courses at the Thai Elephant Conservation Centre in Lampang starting from 23rd of October, 2010. Families with autistic children aged from seven to nineteen are encouraged to attend the programme.
