23 Mar Smart Pup for Mitchel
Its hard living with Autism. Not just daily living is affected but having to cope on your own. The feeling of isolation is not just a feeling, it’s reality.
It’s a reality, not by choice, but because the community dose not accept anyone that is different, especially with a disability that is silent and can not be seen. The community see a naughty child throwing a tantrum, not a meltdown because the child/children are not able to cope with the bright lights at the supermarket, the loud doors that open and close which we can’t hear, the 10 people that to an Autistic person looks and feels like 1000. An Autistic child,s safe haven is their home where staring eyes don’t judge and where Mum has made it sensory safe so there is no triggers but there always is.
How can an Autism Assistance Pup help Mitchel? An Autism Assistance Pup will help give Mitchel the courage, self esteem and a companion that is by his side and there for him 24 hours a day. Through sensing when he becomes anxious and help calm him before his anxiety gets too bad and overwhelming. Peace of mind for Mum so that when that man that came to the door and asked to take a photo of the house, doesn’t happen again. The Pup can give Mitchel courage to step outside his house and get some vitamin D from the sun, give him courage and self esteem to step out into the community and play a sport or visit the market on a Sunday, have a picnic in the park or even swim in the beach or go to the pool. Things that we take for granted are hard for Mitchel.
