but my child needs a service dog at school!

autism therapy dog     I’ve seen an increase in families having to fight to allow service dogs to accompany their child at school. It’s a new way to help autistic children, and has been met with controversy.

Therapy dogs for autism is an amazing thing. The trained dogs can help an autistic child by recognizing seizures before others. Providing an emotionally calming presence. Trained dogs can keep a child from wandering away, a huge concern for most autistic parents. Unfortunately, because this is “new” it’s been met with resistance from some schools.

Would a school deny a blind child a service dog at school? I’d like to say no, but I’m not too sure about that these days
