“As an infant, Kadin did all the things that melt a mother’s heart. By the time he reached a year and a half, however, he was disconnecting from everyone–even his mom. He would scream a lot, wouldn’t sleep, and struggled to communicate.” -Jeff Baillon, Fox 9 News
Kadin is a patient who received occupational therapy here at Children’s. His story was featured on Fox 9 news today, and chronicles the time that he spent with Sasha, one of our wonderful Children’s therapy dogs. (Sasha helped Kadin so much in his journey with autism that Kadin’s family ended up adopting their own service dog, specially trained to work with kids with autism.)
THANK YOU, PAWH volunteers, for the incredible work that you do in promoting healing & supporting our patients! Check out the full article and video here.
