I think that is definitely awesome though part of me wonders how tethering and calming are considered actual "tasks". I guess the term can be used loosely and retrieving the boy should he run is definitely at least one attribute I could see as task related. As a other of an autistic son I have my own feelings on what children should be in a "typical" classroom and which should continue on in special education where the ratio of teachers and students would make it impossible for a child to run off, but I also understand the fear associated with leaving your child in another humans care 7 hours a day where you have to trust they are keeping an eye on him. Having a dog tethered to my son would make me feel more comfortable as well so I hope this is something that does further his education

Per the ADA the dog would be providing distruption task

Service dogs' tasks include the following examples:
* assisting sight-impaired persons with navigation or other tasks;
* alerting hearing-impaired persons to the presence of people or sounds;
* providing non-violent protection or rescue work;
* pulling a wheelchair;
* assisting an individual during a seizure;
* alerting an individual to the presence of allergens;
* retrieving items such as medicine or the telephone;
* providing physical support /assistance with balance and stability to individuals with mobility impairments; and
* helping persons with psychiatric and neurological disabilities by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors.

These tasks are trained in austism dogs.

My husband's cousin's daughter has seizures. They told us their Service Dog can sense when a seizure is coming and warns them. Not sure if thats really true or if simply the dog recognizes early signs not apparent to them. Either way its amazing. She told us a story about how when her daughter was in the hospital the dog appeared to be warning them of an approaching siezure but her duaghter did not end up having a seizure...later they found out a person a few rooms down was having a seizure. They believe the Dog sensed it. I don't know enough about it to make a judgement but its fascinating to me.

when my mom was a regular epileptic (only has seizures now about once every 8 years or so) my grandparents considered a seizure alert dog when they were still learning about it. my mom is allergic to most all animals though so that would have been tough.

A seizure "alert" dog? Wow...so that confirms exactly what the cousin said. Anyway, I'm glad your mom's seizures have been reduced.

There are seizure alert dogs. Typically seizure dogs are seizure response dogs, not alert. When it comes to seizure alert it seems to be something the dog has or doesn't have, where diabetic and other alerts are more easily trained into a dog (its scent training, which they suspect is behind seizure alert as well but it hasn't been identified yet.)
