Animal-assisted therapies may help children with autism and other disabilities learn non-judgmental love and emotions and teach them responsibility for care of an animal. Kids also have the ability to play with the animals, which can translate into physical therapy. Animal therapies are not limited to service dogs, and include therapeutic horseback riding, and swimming with dolphins. The biggest advantage of canine-assisted therapy is that the dog can live with the family and in some cases accompany the child to school.
