University Researcher, International Assistance Dog Week Founder Announce Partnership to Increase Employment for People with Disabilities Partnered with Assistance Dogs
Date:7/24/2013

f types of assistance dogs now available," Davis explains. "Many employers have no experience with assistance dog teams, and don’t know how to respond to this employment issue."

Glenn says, "It is uncharted territory for many and we want to bring together experienced assistance dog partners, researchers, trainers, vocational rehabilitation professionals and others for a year-long focused conversation; a conversation on the question ‘what do we need to know and do to make successful employment outcomes a reality for more assistance dog partners?’”

The Department of Labor has supported International Assistance Dog Week in the past, by publishing a special IADW poster and having Day Al-Mohamed, Senior Policy Advisor, speak in an interview on the Working Like Dogs radio show about all the work they are doing to support the employment of individuals with disabilities.

Glenn is partnering with Davis in order to utilize the Working Like Dogs and International Assistance Dog Week communities and networks for widespread communication of research findings to training organizations, dog trainers, individuals with assistance dogs, and other stakeholders. Summaries of what is learned during this year-long initiative will be published and announced during International Assistance Dog Week in 2014.

This year, International Assistance Dog Week, which is August 4-10, has the theme: Seeing, Hearing, Sensing, Supporting—There’s a dog for that! This theme recognizes the growing diversity of assistance dog types including:

Guide Dogs –Assist people with vision loss, leading them around physical obstacles and with tasks such as crossing streets, and navigating doorways, elevators and stairways.

Service Dogs – Assist people with disabilities with walking, dressing, retrieving and carrying items, opening doors and much more.

Hearing Alert Dogs – Alert people with a hearing loss to the presence of specific sounds s
