PawThe Shelties Difference

Debbie Carr, a Delta Society® (Pet Partners®) licensed instructor and evaluator, and her Shelties, William and Mr. Parker, participate regularly in classes at ScenicView Academy in Provo, Utah, a private, non-profit school for adults with autism or severe learning disabilities. “We use metaphors and symbols, and how they apply to animals to teach the adults communication skills”, explained Debbie. During psychotherapy with an individual student and with one of the Shelties sitting where the student can easily pet him, the student has opened up and talked about things never before discussed with the social worker.
