RSB Autism Assistance Dogs program

RSB Autism Assistance Dogs

An Assistance Dog is one that has been trained and matched with a child who has Autism and their family/carers. The RSB Assistance Dog School is a International Guide Dog Federation accredited program recognised by the governing body for these highly specialised dogs, Assistance Dogs International (ADI). As such recognised Assistance Dogs have legal rights similar to those of a Guide or Hearing Dog in that they are allowed to enter public places.

RSB Assistance Dogs provide benefits in terms of calming roles, independence, play and social interactions as well as a range of client specific tasks tailored to the child and their family's needs.

The RSB is pleased to announce that RSB Autism Assistance Dogs will soon be available in South Australia.
