​Service dogs for autistic children can be a great relief for parents who need help managing their child's behavior. Autism service dogs can be taught numerous tasks, which can include:

  • Alert: signal to a parent when something is wrong, such as a child walking into the road.

  • Deep Pressure: recognize anxiety and give deep pressure during sensory processing difficulties. This proprioceptive tool helps to re-establish a sense spatial awareness and grounding. It is equivalent to a warm, cozy weighted blanket.
