Lisa asks…

Do you think cats are good for autistic kids?

I have two very young (3 and 4) autistic kids. Just got two kittens, about 7 and 4 month old. Just wondering.

admin answers:

Of course! Animals are great for autistic kids as they help them to communicate and learn responsibility ( have them help to feed and water the kittens ,and brush their fur) You have to watch that the kids don’t get too rough,though,and hurt the kittens.My cousin’s 8 year old autistic daughter just got a kitten and she loves her.They have always had animals,but this is the first time Brooke has ever shown interest in one of them.Animals are often used in therapy for autistic children.Good luck with your kids and kittens.
