Pet Dogs and Children with Autism

Prof Daniel Mills will be answering your questions in our live online Q&A, Thursday 30 April 2015, 12.30pm (GMT).

Daniel MillsProfessor Daniel Mills is a RCVS, European and ASAB recognised specialist in clinical animal behaviour, who has been developing and exploring new interventions for behaviour problems at Lincoln for over 20 years. He has a strong research interest in the comparative psychology underpinning behaviour and behavioural interventions, with a particular interest in what makes an individual different and how this arises from their interaction with the environment.

Professor Mills recently completed a long term study examining the effect of the family dog on both children with autism and their carers. The work was conducted with Dogs for the Disabled alongside their PAWS initiative http://paws.dogsforthedisabled.org/

Daniel will be exclusively presenting the results of this research at our upcoming My Family and Autism conference taking place in London on 21 May.
