Autistic children may be helped by having a pet3rd August 2012
Researchers have claimed that children with autism can improve their social skills if they have a pet to play with after they turn five years old.
Children with the developmental disorder were better able to both offer comfort and share things if they had a pet from that age. But this was not seen in autistic youngsters who had lived with pets in their family since they were born, according to the research carried out by the team from the Hospital Research Centre of Brest in France.
