Braedan Hines & Rubin
My son Braedan is 6 years old. He was diagnosed with mild Asperger Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, anxiety, and sensory sensitivities. Though he looks and acts like your average little boy, there are so many obstacles for him to overcome. He has a hard time making friends, staying in class for a day, and with transitioning. He has gone through counseling, occupational therapy, and Baystate’s Child Partial Hospitalization program twice.
Braedan was matched with social dog Rubin, and they love each other so much. Rubin is so attuned to Braedans emotional needs, he is right by his side when Braedan is having a bad day. Out in public, he is more open to strangers who comment to Rubin. I love seeing their bond grow everyday!
