A Service Dog for Simon

Photo of Simon

Simon is a 12 year old who loves video games, reading, Legos and science; he is also Autistic.

For Simon this means he has difficulty with social interactions and gets frustrated easily when he doesn’t understand the behavior of his peers.  These frustrations can cause upsets, meltdowns, panic and anxiety most of which means he has to step out of the classroom to be able to regulate his mind and body.

With the help of a service dog Simon will have a partner to help keep him grounded, reduce these frustrations, provide deep pressure therapy and stay present in the classroom.

At home and in the community Simon’s anxiety and sensory input can go into overdrive; sometimes this results in difficulty sleeping, inability to eat, unable to interact with others and can cause dysregulation.  Transitions or unexpected schedule changes can knock Simon off course for the rest of the day.

Simon has the biggest heart for dogs and often cannot pass one by without asking for permission to interact with it.  When he does get the chance the tension/anxiety in his body melts away, a change you can visibly see in him as he receives relief in that moment.

Enabling Simon to have a service dog partner will provide this same relief on a constant basis allowing him more independence as he navigates the world with less anxiety, better sleep, more focus, a constant to help with transitions, sensory relief and so much more.
