K-9 Comfort Dog Shami Touches the Lives of Autistic Children Print E-mail
Last week K-9 Comfort Dog Shami from St. John Darien, along with handler Toni Bazon, visited a classroom with autistic children. The response of the children was so remarkable the teacher wrote to explain what happened.
Shami St John Darien Shami came to visit our classroom last week. I have five students that have Autism. Out of the five four of them are considered "nonverbal". When Shami came into the room, one child in particular stated more spontaneous language than he has all school year, as he kissed, hugged, and lay next to her. To watch a child unfold before your eyes, there are no words to describe that moment. God worked with Shami so that we could see another side to this little boy that we haven't seen before. It was incredible. I look forward to seeing the work Shami continues to do in our class!
We praise God for the ways in which He touches the lives of children and adults through the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry. Toni reports that Shami will return to this classroom on October 25. Click here to "Like" Shami on Facebook
