Doctor Dog – Our very own Speech Therapist

Doctor Dog speech therapist

I read this and almost jumped from my seat! This article on the therapeutic management of children with special needs by a dog amazed me to the core. Thought I should share this with all my readers.

Meet Dr Russels, a cute fluffy labrador dog based in Chennai, India who is saving the hour and doing it all for love and nothing else. He is said to have helped many non-verbal kids with autism, ADHD, and other developmental delays in speaking up, reducing anxieties and in coping with complex behavioural issues.

Ruffles is the resident ‘doctor’ at the Saraswathi Kendra Learning Centre for Children run by the C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundation. He’s a member of their groundbreaking Dr Dog programme, which began in 2001 with the help of the Animal Asia Foundation (AAF), a Hong Kong-based organisation founded by Jill Robinson that specialises in animal-assisted therapy for children with special needs.
Dr Russel’s unconditional love for his little patients helps them open up, resolve volatile behaviours and emerge happier!

Here’s to this wonderful creature who is truly touching lives!
