This case series examined differences in participation in OT sessions involving AAT versus no AAT. Nine children with neurological conditions completed three similar activities, once with and once without AAT. Repetitions and length of engagement were recorded for each activity. No consistent differences between the conditions were recorded, perhaps because the integration of a dog added a dynamic component, affecting how activities were completed.
