This book shares the journey of Renee Farneti Jensen, occupational therapist, who developed and implemented a Canine Animal Assisted Therapy program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The book is a valuable resource for therapists and parents who are considering this type of therapy for autistic children.
The introduction shares a vingette written from the perspective of the therapy dog, Vicki, who shared this journey with Renee. The author provides comprehensive information from start to finish in selecting populations who would benefit from this type of therapy through the selection of a dog, trainer and even materials to use to train others.
