Seventy percent of children with autism also have seizures, and a canine companion can be life-saving for them. Dogs serve as dual protectors for autistic children, providing parents with seizure alerts and assistance as they lay on children during a seizure. They also serve as a steady companion and anchor point in case a child tries to flee. As a companion, dogs provide much needed pressure if a child is overwhelmed or aggressive, and are trained to track a child’s scent if they become lost. Studies show that service dogs can even cut down on bullying at school. However, the cost for these dogs can be expensive, costing upward of $20,000.00. Ady’s Paws aims to equip families with the canine help they need, no financial burden attached.
