To create a program of Therapy whereby using dogs and agility will help reduce the sensory chaos that individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can experience. Agility dogs are non-threatening, therefore they have the ability to open the door into the world of a individual with ASD.
Using "condition specific", structured stages I aim to teach individuals with ASD, via DATA, how to engage, interact and understand the social rules of what makes a successful partnership.
I hope to teach individuals meaningful language and communication skills that help them to realise the social joy of communication between themselves and the dog. By doing so, DATA will give the autistic individual the mechanisms to create a successful relationship.
