Hi mom!
Great article! This would be an interesting field to do research in. I especially liked the case of the girl with cognitive impairment. I wonder what kind of effect pets have on children with autism. Do you know if Jennifer works with any austistic children?

Hi Amy...
Glad you liked the article. Although I personally haven't worked with autistic children since my Pet Therapy Internship, there is a lot of data touting the benefits that pets have on autistic children. When it comes to these children, pets provide sensory stimulation and elicit reactions that often humans can't. If you're interested, have a look at http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/CCAB/paws.htm. It's a great resource for all things related to pet therapy. If you click on "children with special needs" and then "autism", you'll find a lot of articles and documentation. I also agree with you that it would be a very interesting area of research. I've been toying with the idea of doing a Masters for a very long time now - I just haven't found a supervisor or a department that really fits...
