Therapy dogs with children with autism

capcelera_bocalán

Those who follow us on social network, may know that Mascoteros has recently funded its last project, which has helped Jadoul Foundation to feed 170 homeless dogs during one month and a half.  You can remember the project HERE.

It is not the first time that Mascoteros customers show their social commitment when making their purchases. In fact, to date, its customers have raised close to € 10,000. Thanks to them, 4 social entities could start up their projects related to the animal world

Now, they initiate a new challenge so that children with autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) can carry out their therapy together with dogs, something that will increase their motivation and, consequently, the results of the therapy they follow.

bocalan_logoThey will do it together with Bocalán Foundation, an entity characterized by the inclusion of animals within therapeutic or educational processes with different groups that allow greater participation.

And it is that, often, people with autism show alterations in communication and social interaction, causing them difficulties in relating and understanding social behaviors, as well as difficulties in the language. Dogs help to capture the attention of children and encourages their participation in therapy by being a living being that moves, has different textures, smells and interacts directly with them.

 The challenge of the Mascoteros clients will be to obtain the necessary capital so that 10 children with autism can benefit from the assisted therapy with dogs for 4 months.
