Assistance Dogs for Autism

Autism describes a developmental disability that can be expressed in many different ways. Assistance dogs help with sensory overloads and social communication. They make the life of  a child, or an adult, with autism much easier through individual training measures. They are calming in stressful situations, they give security when in crowds of people, and they can simply be entrusted with supervision of a child with autism. If the child becomes out of control, they can be physically attached to the dog, who then acts as an anchor.
