Since beginning a consistent therapy routine, Aidan has gone from being completely non-verbal to speaking about 25 words and attempting to repeat many words he hears. He communicates what he cannot say through his Proloquo2Go app and is very confident using it. Thankfully, Aidan has been surrounded by a very strong support team of teachers, therapists, doctors and immediate family. After meeting a family who had an autism service dog, we began to inquire, and we found W.A.G.S. 4 Kids. Adding a service dog to Aidan’s support team would benefit him tremendously by calming him when he is anxious or frustrated, refocusing his stimming behaviors and enhancing his vocabulary and social skills.
