Most of you know about Nash’s needs, but for those of you who don’t- Nash has a rare syndrome called ADNP as well as nonverbal autism.
Some difficulties that come with this are low muscle tone , dysphasia , temperature regulation difficulties , sensory needs , choking episodes , self harming , and low mobility. A service dog can help with many of these difficulties!
After much research we realized that having a service dog for Nash will fill in the gaps where medication and therapy can’t! Reading and hearing stories from parents of other children who have similar needs as Nash and seeing how their service dog has helped their children and changed their lives made us realize that Nash’s quality of life would be greatly improved by his future furry friend.
We cannot thank you all enough for your continued support with Nash. He has such a village rallying with him and we could not be more blessed. Seriously, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
