Jory, PAALS Client with Autism & Medication Dog Daisy

I have autism, and the classic hallmark of autism is that social interaction is difficult, Daisy helps me engage with others. One thing that I’ve surprised myself with is that before I came to USC, I would have never thought that I could do something like Cocky’s Reading Express. That whole concept had been foreign to me. As a result, it’s been important for me to grow in that way and to overcome that challenge. Without Daisy, I would have never been able to overcome that step or try something that’s not in my comfort zone.
