"Our two guinea pigs have taught my students the importance of taking care of someone else, it has increased their communication skills, as well as increased their social emotional development.”#autism #autismawareness#education
Caring for pets teaches children about responsibility by teaching them to care for the needs of another living being. What a fun and exciting way to teach important life lessons! #education#lifelessons#teachingresponsibility
#Teachers - We've been coming across a lot of studies that show the positive effect pets have on kids with #autism. If you have seen these effects first-hand in your classroom, we'd love to hear about it! Please leave a comment or message us!
Have you checked out the "Dogs and Cats Hear Much, Much More!" PDF that is available on our website? The book, written by by Janet Marlow, M.A. is a wonderful resource that will help your students understand how animals relate to the world through their acute sense of hearing. Recommended for children ages 7-12. #DogsandCats #childrensbooks #education Pet Acoustics
