Autistic Disorder is also known as autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autistic Disorder is a chronic illness that has various symptoms such as the failure of an individual to coordinate movement and repetitions of words. Additionally, other severe symptoms include lack of imaginative ability, inability to communicate properly, and lack of ability to socialize with other people. Individuals with autism have difficulties interacting with other individuals that are non-autistic (Baio, Wiggins, Christensen, Maenner, Daniels, Warren & Dowling, 2018). Autistic Disorders affects the IQ of an individual with more than seventy percent of autistic individuals considered to be mentally retarded.
The term autism was first discovered by a doctor from Johns Hopkins University, where he was using the term to describe children who had emotionally and socially challenges interacting with their peers.

Initially, medical interventions among autistic individuals included the use of electric shocks, LSD, and behavior change techniques such as inducing pain and punishment to change behavior.
Before an individual is diagnosed with Autistic Disorder must have passed all the procedures outlined by the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM-IV). The qualitative impairment under DSM-IV includes delays in functioning, lack of interest in social activities, stereotyped patterns of behaviors, and restricted repetition. My research question in this assignment is, do the applications of animal therapy provide benefits regarding social interactions and learning skills in children diagnosed with Autistic Disorder.

Animal therapy is also known as pet therapy can be useful in helping children with Autistic Disorder enhance their social interaction with other people. Research is the most important process in asserting whether animal therapy is beneficial to children suffering from Autistic Disorder children (Townsend & Morgan, 2017). The research on the applicability of animal therapy to enhance the management of autistic children requires the gathering of primary data or analysis of second-hand information from peer-reviewed journal articles.
The research involves the analysis of data from different sources through the provision of tests and proof. The research process is guided by a research question. The
