We've heard this from teachers with classroom pets, and now studies are proving it...animals can help improve social skills in children with autism. #autism   #school   #education   #pets   #teachers  
When animals are present, children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) have lower readings on a device that detects anxiety and other forms of social arousal when interacting with their peers. According to a study, companion animals -- like dogs, cats or the guinea pigs in the study --may prove to be a helpful addition to treatment programs designed to help children with ASDs improve their social skills and interactions with other people.
