ECAD, Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
September 7, 2010
East Coast Assistance Dogs is a very unique organization. They help people with physical disabilities as well as developmental disabilities. They also provide dogs for our disabled service men and woman who have both physical and psychological disabilities from having served our country in a war.
I have balance issues and have frequent falls. I know the emotional isolation of having a disability and look forward to the friendship of a service dog. I am also the mother of an adult daughter with autism. Service dogs provide an invaluable service to autistic individuals by helping them to use language skills and connect to others socially. I am so glad that dogs are now available to help autistic children. ECAD is helping so many people with disabilities achieve a better life!
