      3 Reasons You Need An Autism Service Dog

      Dogs are near and dear to my heart for this reason: I love dogs.  

      And I love them all: little squishy dogs, old soul dogs, and even the naughty dogs.

      I have always had at least one dog in my life. Dogs see your soul. Accept you. Adore you and love you. And in this world that is pretty extraordinary.

      I have known for a long time that dogs were available to assist the blind, but, I’ve also learned that dogs are trained to help people with autism too.

      Help, companionship, and security

      1.  Autism service dogs provide safety

      Parents worry so much about the safety of their children with autism.  Wandering away from their families or into the path of danger happens too frequently.

      Autism service dogs are trained to stay close to their child, follow their child’s scent and assist with search and rescue.  Another way autism service dogs provide safety is by tethering the child to the service dog to keep the child close.  Moms have so much to do and so many details to keep up with that tethering takes the worry about a child wandering away.

      2. Interrupting repetitious behavior and meltdowns

      Autistic meltdown or sensory processing overload is very real.  Too much stimulus causes a breakdown.

      Autism service dogs provide comfort and can interrupt behaviors or signal for help stopping a harmful behavior.

      3.  Friendship, Security and Transition Help

      It’s good to have friends.  When a kid with autism is struggling to make it through a new transition, this is where his dog can help.

      Service dogs offer comfort, security, and stability during unfamiliar routines and transitions.

      Below is a list of organizations working to connect people with autism to service animals.
