Autism and Dogs For The Disabled

By | March 28, 2014

I don’t often watch daytime tv but I’m glad I did yesterday. This Morning had a feature on this little boy:


Toby appeared on the programme with his mum, to talk very expressively about how a dog has transformed his life, for the better. The interview can be seen by clicking here.

Toby talked about how he didn’t enjoy life before Sox (the dog) and how Sox has benefited them all. It was heart-warming to see.

I’ve looked on the Dogs For The Disabled website and their category on dogs for autistic individuals can be found be clicking here.

Sadly, we don’t appear to be able to apply as we have more than one autistic child but I thought the information was worth sharing and, if Toby is anything to go by, the benefits are immense.>
