Benefits of Service Dogs for Autism & Asperger's
For children or adults with Autism or related spectrum disorder, there can be some challenges including withdrawn behavior, difficulties with communication, short attention, social withdrawal, and anxiety. This can result in concerns for social situations like large crowds or loud noises. There are several benefits of having a service dog specifically for Autism or Autism Spectrum related disorders.
Support for Anxiety & Meltdowns
Service dogs for emotional support including anxiety can sense the emotional state of their human companion. Not only do dogs generally reduce stress for humans, a service dog specifically trained for kids and adults with autism can help reduce anxiety, calm down a meltdown, or be protective so one does not harm themselves or others accidently.
Comfort & Loyal Companionship
Children or adults with autism often lack cognitive skills that make it difficult to be in social settings. However, service dogs for autism can quickly bond with children that have special needs. Therapy dogs provide comfort and loyal companionship for those having trouble with communication or socializing.
Children with autism are encouraged to find sensory stimulation through games and activities. Service dogs for special needs can be trained to assist with sensory support through fun activities like tug of war or cuddling.
Service Dogs for Non Verbal Autism or Asperger's
Having a service dog can greatly benefit individuals that experience non verbal Autism or Asperger's. syndrome Our German Shepherds are specially trained to support those who struggle with verbal communication and social interactions.
Service dogs can be trained to understand and respond to specific cues and commands, allowing them to assist with tasks such as fetching items, opening doors, and providing deep pressure therapy for calming sensory overload.
In addition to practical tasks, service dogs for non verbal Autism or Asperger's can offer emotional support to reduce anxiety and companionship.
Service Dogs for Young Children
Service Dogs can be particularly beneficial for young children for young children with Autism or Asperger's. At Regis Regal, we specifically train dogs for children as young as 3 years old for emotional and physical support. This is rare occurrence since most families have to wait until their child is much older. Our belief is that by giving a sense of security and comfort to young children in need, they can learn to become more independent and experience less anxiety. Our service dogs for special needs training prepares our world-class German Shepherds for physical and emotional support tasks for non verbal Autism and Asperger's.
