Spectrum of autism 3 years old kid

Dear All,

I have 3,5 year old son and he was diagnosed with spectrum of autism. I am now looking for some therapy dog for him. Does any of you know someone who has such a dog and live around Zurich?

What about hipotherapy close to Zurich?


Thanks!

I'm sorry - I just re-read your post and realized you are looking for a therapy dog, not therapy... I haven't heard of anything so far, but will keep an ear open.

Re: Spectrum of autism 3 years old kid

Hello kocik, I am attaching a link about Therapy Dogs in Switzerland who assist autistics (I think). The text is in German, but at the end, there is an email address which you could perhaps contact to take things further.

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxJD...hl=en_US&pli=1

Additionally, I would suggest that you post a message under the Pets Corner Forum here in EF using the words "Therapy Dog for Autistic Child"in the title. There are very many knowledgeable people who visit this particular Forum and perhaps someone there can help.

Good luck to you and your little boy.
