Certainly Diane and her dog’s days at school are among my favorites, and the kids love them. Diane is an excellent teacher and knows her students well. She confers with staff on behavioral repertoires, knows her goals for each student and how best to achieve them using a specially trained dog, and then provides immediate feedback to staff, and to parents when present. She is able to do this in a very caring, focused and succinct way, spending as much of the allotted time with the students as possible. Her dogs are dogs of many talents as well, complete with many behaviors and a large wagonload of learning materials and props. – Sharon Hoyt, Early Childhood Special Education Teacher, Santa Clara County, San Jose, CA.
