Robert gets a Service Dog – Autism & NEADS

Autism is really hard. It sucks. But then, as a parent, when your kid gets to a certain age and you add puberty into the mix, you’d better get ready for the ride of your life. You think you know anxiety, but you have no idea. You think you know what a tantrum is, but […]

So happy for your son, your entire family, and Cohen! I have a NEADS Service Dog for Therapy that is my partner as I work with kids and adults with Autism and other needs. When Murray is with me, he is definitly the preferred clinician 😉

Wow! This project is amazing! It’s relevant and very important during this moment in history. Moreover, these faces, of children of so many ethnicities, give me some hope in these dark times. It makes me wonder if It’s possible to dream of a future in which each of the ethnic groups get along peacefully. Are we wise enough to learn from the faces of children?
