Autism Assistance Dogs

1 in 100 children in the UK are diagnosed with Autism. Half of these children will have a tendency to bolt and wander off from their care givers which can be very dangerous and has often resulted in injuries to the child.

Autism Assistance Dogs are trained to provide safety and companionship, helping to bring independence for both the child and their family.

Autism Assistance Dogs have been shown to:
• Reduce stress for family members
• Promote positive changes in behavior
• Provide comfort for children with autism when upset
• Suppress behavioral outbursts
