Purdue CARES - Canines for Autism Research Study

We are inviting families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aged 4-17 years old who are affiliated with Canine Companions for Independence - either with a skilled companion OR on the waitlist for a skilled companion to participate in a national research study conducted by Purdue University.
