How can Dogs help Autistic Children? /
Dog Activity- Best Way to Bring Change in an ASD Child
The dogs are trained to bring affection and comfort to their owners. It can help a child grow emotionally and cognitively in addition to offering friendship. They can also be trained to play sensory games with children with autism, which will provide them with the necessary sensory stimulation. For this purpose, we are working in collaboration with Mr Khawaja Noman, one of the famous animal activists.
Autistic children need such activities to boost and polish their hidden skills. We are practicing the best platform with appropriate care. Our specialists attend to the children vigilantly and take care of all the precautionary measures during the whole activity. Below are some of the highlighted benefits and factors of performing dog activities on a routine basis after fixed intervals:
Dogs Enhances Concentration and Focus
Many autistic children feel as if they are stuck inside their heads. A dog will be able to initiate their interest and move their focus away from their imaginative world. Dogs have even been demonstrated to boost a child’s focus and can assist in diverting a child’s attention away from a worst habit or behavior.
Provide Sensory Support
When a child attends to such dogs under the supervision of the therapists in their period of high anxiety, the gentle pressure while touching the back helps to bring a sense of peace and provides great affiliation for a child with sensory needs.
Dogs Can Calm a Hyperactive Child
A worried child can benefit from a dog’s presence by caressing or embracing it. The dogs are also trained to play and embrace such children to relieve anxiety. These techniques can also assist our children to have better and more peaceful days.
One of the Best Ways to Enhance Vocal Skills
When children with ASD are in the presence of such a dog in the presence of their trustworthy therapists, results have shown that their speech increases. Even nonverbal children’s vocalizations will rise in excitement. It is possibly the most important advantage of a dog for an autistic child.
Plays a Huge Role to Overcome Fear
We’ve witnessed the incredible difference dogs can make via the trained dogs that Mr. Khawaja brings. We’ve also seen how dogs boost confidence, reduce anxiety, increase communication, and help children work more fearlessly once they get familiar with them in our dog activity.
