General Safety

One example of how autism service dogs can be beneficial is this: these dogs can help keep a person with autism safe, no matter what their age. This is because, oftentimes when a person with autism is out and about with their service dog the dog is tethered to them. This is beneficial because dogs can lead the way if a person with autism becomes lost or too scared to function properly. They can also pull persons with autism out of dangerous situations, such as an approaching car.
