Tettenhall Wood School, based in Wolverhampton are a special educational needs school, who have seen positive changes in the emotional and social interaction of the children in their care since attending the Animal Assisted Intervention Programme. Pupils undertook the 'Anxiety and Low Mood' six week programme. Teachers noticed a considerable difference in the mood of the children, the development of their social skills in the community within a couple of weeks of attending our sessions, with some children now recognising and processing emotions.
