This to me a topic that invites intrigue because we have a neighbor that had a dog which worked with kids like my son and yet didn’t seem to connect.
He’s also had trouble with Oreo, our cat and his mom’s three dogs and yet I still believe this. In fact he does seem to be doing much better here. We also have my daughters hamster, Candy and so maybe that helps too.
Anyway the article I came across is entitled “Pets May Boost Social Skills in Kids with Autism” by Shaun Heasly at Disability Scoop. What do you think?
