Canines for Disabled Kids - CDK


Canines for Disabled Kids began in 1998 as a natural offshoot of the NEADS assistance dog program. Very few service dog programs are willing to provide trained service dogs for children under age 18; CDK saw a need and worked to filled it. It was possible to train dogs to help autistic children, children with hearing disabilities, other physical disabilities and disabled children in the classrooms. In an effort to enhance the education and independence of children with disabilities across the USA, we started to sponsor dogs that would work with the child but with the aid of a parent. Soon, many applications were coming to the program and, since 1998; CDK has sponsored over 187 assistance dogs, dogs that can help children with different disabilities with their parents as facilitators.
