Yorktown’s Guiding Eyes for the Blind is assisting children with autism.
With April marking National Autism Awareness Month, the nonprofit will welcome six families to its Yorktown Heights headquarters to meet the children’s new autism service dogs for the first time.
“Heeling Autism dogs ensure safety for children with autism and help them to develop lasting emotional and social bonds. As a result, families are able to lead more normal, less stressful lives. Parents often report other life-changing benefits as well, including increased independence, confidence and social acceptance,” representatives said in a press release.
