Therapy animals helping kids adjust


Medical group sets up centers to assist learning-disabled children with their social development in Dalian, Liaoning

A pediatric hospital in Dalian, Liaoning province, demonstrated the value of animals in therapy on May 31 as children interacted with two therapy dogs and two trained horses.


The activity included children who attend early education classes or receive regular health examinations, among them a number of autistic children.


The Dalian Women and Children's Medical Group, a large hospital association, established the city's first practice center to provide targeted training primarily to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.


"We hope to improve the rehabilitation system for children with ASD in Dalian using local resources," said Wang Daqing, head of the group.
