When Autism Assistance Dog Zeke came into Lachlan Masters’ life, the dog changed the young boy’s world.
In the five-and-a-half years since the Adelaide family was matched with Zeke through Guide Dogs SA/NT, the changes for Lachlan – and the whole family – have been “phenomenal”, according to Lachlan’s mother, Judy Masters.
“Lachlan was diagnosed with severe autism at 18 months. He was completely non-verbal; he would spin in circles, run full pelt, slam his head on the floor, bite us, punch us, because he was just trapped, he couldn’t get out what he wanted to say,” she said.
