Our Residential Assistance Dog Programme provides a fully-trained dog and bespoke training, education and therapeutic support for each client and their care-givers. The programme is delivered in 6 phases, and is effectively managed and documented at all times.
Our fully-trained Autism Assistance Dogs can provide emotional and practical support to an autistic child or adult, in order to mitigate the challenges they face. Each dog is trained to perform a number of tasks, all of which are tailored to the handler’s individual challenges and needs. This can enable the dogs to help their handler to cope with challenges, manage their anxiety, grow in confidence, interact with others, and maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Once your qualified dog is delivered to you, then you will receive ongoing and comprehensive aftercare support for the lifetime of the dog. Maintaining your dog’s health, happiness, and skill levels is important and is regularly assessed.
As a non-for-profit Community Interest Company, we only ask the client to pay a percentage of the total cost of the Programme. This is made possible by our dedicated team devoting hundreds of hours of work at a reduced rate or entirely voluntarily.
You are required to contribute a total of £12,995.
IMPORTANT: To enroll on to the Programme, the handler must have a confirmed diagnosis of autism.
