Autism and Animal Therapy

February 25, 2010

I was reading about Autism and came across these videos about animal therapy and how it helps autistic kids in communicating. I have personally visited one of the Autism centers in India and have seen how they use animal therapy to help  out autistic kids. The organization “Prasanna Autism Center “ in Pune is doing incredible job in raising awareness about Autism in India. Hats off to people like Mrs Godbole (founder of Prasanna Autism center) who are true heroes and doing real grass root level work. I hope maybe one of the Asha chapters can support their activities, would be a great learning experience for the volunteers.

    Hi, I am Minal Kavishwar, the one who had introduced and run the Animal Therapy program for Autistic children at Prasanna Autism center Pune. I just happened to find your post while surfing. Its good to know that our work is creating awareness among people in India. Since the project at Prasanna, Animal Angels has conducted many other programs of Animal Therapy in different areas of mental and medical health. We are currently working on ground breaking application on Animal therapy in hospitals in India. If you can help us raise funds for our program or create awareness, it would be really helpful.
