Dogs help with autism26th May 2011
A study from the University of Lincoln has suggested that dogs can help reduce stress in parents of children with lifelong developmental disability autism.
Researchers from the university compared 20 families with dogs with 20 without and found that early results suggested any breed could improve communication and relationships. Professor Daniel Mills, a veterinary behavioural medicine professor, presented the findings to a Royal Society of Medicine conference. He now hopes to use video footage to show how dogs can improve child eating, sleeping and tantrum behaviour.
