October is Autism Awareness Month

October is Autism Awareness Month

by Martha Scully

For Autism Month we have decided to highlight a wonderful organization that helps children with Autism. Since 1996, National Service Dogs (NSD) has been training Labrador and Golden Retrievers to assist children and families living with autism. NSD has placed nearly 300 Certified Service Dogs across Canada and has helped various training schools around the world develop their own autism programs.
