Dogs for Autism is a great cause. They are a small charity that will train and provide assistance dogs to autistic individuals of all ages creating a special bond, and providing the autistic with the best possible support. The dogs they provide help people access the world easier and expand their horizons. These four-legged heroes help to bring comfort, assistance, and independence to individuals and families affected by autism.
Dogs for Autism’s assistance dogs are specifically trained and are carefully selected and go through lots of training to develop specialised skills. These amazing canines are taught to provide forms of assistance tailored to the unique needs of each individual. They are trained to respond to cues, interrupt repetitive behaviours, offer deep pressure therapy during moments of distress, and even aid in tracking and locating individuals who may wander off, ensuring their safety.
Dogs for Autism’s overall aim is to “empower autistic people to realise their individual potential, improve their access to their chosen communities, and to enhance their emotional and physical wellbeing.” The charity works closely with families, providing them with valuable resources, education, and ongoing support. Through their efforts, Dogs for Autism helps reduce stigmas associated with autism and highlights the abilities and potential of individuals on the spectrum.
Dogs for Autism recently had a charity event where they created a puppy training school. Part of the puppy training school involves the installation of a disabled toilet, including two hand dryers inside, which is where we come in!
We’re delighted that we were asked to provide Dogs for Autism with 3 hand dryers for their event so that the puppies can get used to the sounds. They needed two that were louder and one that was quieter so we supplied them with two of the powerful Kangarillo’s and one AirBOX V2 which has sound control. We love that our hand dryers were used for such an amazing cause.
