There are many different types of therapy that can benefit children with autism, and one that this video highlights is animal therapy with the help of a service dog. In the video, you will meet one child with autism who was almost completely non-verbal and frequently had outbursts at home. After learning that service dogs can help children with autism, the child’s family chose to bring in a new four legged member of the family who has transformed the child’s life in a number of positive ways.
