I received an email from Casey over at Rover.com that I want to share with you:
Aside from providing TLC for dogs while their owners are away, here at Rover we’re interested in celebrating canines in every capacity of companionship possible. We’ve all seen firsthand the power of service dogs, but did you know that they can be profoundly helpful for the autistic?
I recently learned that 4 Paws For Ability is the oldest service dog provider with autism-oriented dogs. There’s been a lot of coverage in the media recently about autism service dogs, and while they’re not the best fit for everyone, for some, they work wonders… like in this case, which recently went viral and has definitely generated a lot of buzz: Here’s How A Dog Can Help Stop An Aspergers Meltdown.
There’s such a wide range of ways and levels in which people get affected by autism that every resource can have a profound impact on their quality of life. I thought you might be interested in sharing this piece of ours on “The Life-Changing Impact of Autism Service Dogs” on your resources page, where I hope it can help your community.
