Our specialist advice and support has brought life-changing benefits to whole families. Research has shown that the families we work with have lowered parental stress, they go out more together and autistic children have fewer meltdowns as a result of their pet dog.
Following the workshops, ongoing support is available to families that qualify including telephone support, online resources, and a private Facebook group.
