    Having worked with children (some with autism) for 12 years and loving dogs, I think this is the most wonderful program EVER!!
    Of course I got tears in my eyes while watching the videos.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I don't work with autistic children but we do have a LIFE skills class at my school. Most of the kids are either Down's or autistic. I see the frustration at not being able to communicate.....I think this program is wonderful......We have also had some kids with Asberger's autism who are in a regular class, but they are so different, they don't have many friends if any, and I thought of those kids when I was watching this.....what a wonderful program.

    Do any of the Down's kids learn sign language? I started volunteering at a local elementary school - 3rd grade - about 8 years ago. There were a few Down's kids that were mainstreamed, and they all knew ASL.
