Pets, People and Autism

From The New York Times' Consult blog, a piece that follows up on the Tuesday's Science Times article by reporter Carla Baranauckas about a major new effort to study the role that pets play in human health, “Exploring the Health Benefits of Pets.” This topic is generating quite a bit of interest in the autism community.

This week Dr. Melissa Nishawala, clinical director of the autism-spectrum service at the Child Study Center at New York University, joins the Consults blog to reader answer questions about pet therapy, companion animals and the treatment of autism.
