I don't have links, but a personal thought. We are requesting my son's dog be tether trained after trying him out with a dog who was. He reacted much like I thought he would. He pulls on a harness that I hold. When tethered to the dog, he wants to stick by the dog. He doesn't pull the lead taut. The dog makes him more comfortable and less likely to bolt, just by being there.

Here is a link to a study done with Autism service dogs and their new handlers. It isn't directly related to tethering but it does touch on the subject.
