Animal Assisted Intervention for Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Dr. Sabrina Schuck will share results from her most recent work examining Animal Assisted Intervention (AAI) with certified therapy dogs for children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and discuss how practitioners and educators may feasibly implement these strategies and be best prepared to overcome barriers to utilizing AAI in school settings.  She will provide a review of recent studies that support the role of animals in enhancing skills of executive function and she will discuss the theoretical underpinnings for incorporating animals into educational settings for children with relative deficits in these skills.
