I am the mom of an 8 yr old boy with PPD-NOS and ADHD. We homeschool and are looking for homeschooling groups that focus on special needs children and have social gatherings or group activities. Any groups in North Texas who do this? We live in Anna, TX (north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex)

What is the difference between service dogs and companion dogs?
Where are their places to get a dog who are reliable, have well trained dogs etc?
