Smart Pups Assistance Dogs for Special Needs Children Inc. Just as Seeing Eye dogs make the world more navigable for the blind, specially trained Assistance Dogs are now also helping children with autism gain success and independence. Each Assistance Dog guides its child through his or her daily routine and acts as a bridge between the child and the rest of the world. Such Assistance Dogs reduce the child's stress levels and increase their daily success in a variety of ways.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of children living with autism or seizure related syndromes by training our Assistance Dogs in 'task specific' skills - providing safety, companionship, mobility and independence.
Our vision is that every child in Australia living with autism, seizure, mobility and diabetes related syndromes will have access to the security and companionship of a Smart Pup Assistance Dog.
