After partnering for more than a year, Easterseals Happiness House and InStride Therapy formally merged all business operations last month. Easterseals began managing business operations at InStride in 2019. The merger completely marries business details of the two enterprises and expands traditional Easterseals therapies—which include occupational, physical, speech and behavioral—to include hippotherapy, which aids physical needs, and equine-assisted therapy, which assists clients with mental health, emotional and behavioral needs including those associated with autism.

InStride Therapy will maintain its brand identity and website, now anchored under the Easterseals umbrella of services, as well as its 25-year legacy of offering equine therapy.
