Autism Service Dogs

Dogs play a crucial part in a childs social and cognitive development. The Human-animal interaction alleviates stress in children, reduces disruptive characteristics and abnormal behaviors. A dog's ability to calm autistic children gives the child an increased attention span, and a greater aptitude for learning. The Service Dogs act as an anchor when the child is tethered to the dog. Having a service dog can create freedom for the child to go outside of the house safely and confidently, which expands a child's capability to experience more of life and to grow, improving a child's socialization and behavior skills.
