ADS is focused on placing Service Dogs with children with Autism and related disorders specifically. We do not train for a wide variety of services as we feel we can best support our families by focusing on one specific area and being the best we can be in that area of service.
ADS places dogs with children up to the age of 18.
ADS does not require an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis to be considered for our program. If a child has challenges which present in a similar manner to Autism we will evaluate the child’s needs to determine if a Service Dog could provide beneficial support to the child.
