Offering people with disabilities who have non ADUK assistance dogs the opportunity to gain peace of mind by having their assistance dog independently assessed.
The Assistance Dog Assessment Association (ADAA), is a charity that offers people living with disabilities the opportunity to have their assistance dog independently assessed.
Combined we have more than 30 years experience within the assistance dog sector, both within Assistance Dogs UK (ADUK) and non ADUK/owner trained organisations. We appreciate that being an owner trained team or Non ADUK team can make access to services difficult, that is why we have complied a comprehensive public access assessment to bridge this gap.
We at the ADAA want to help offer you peace of mind working your assistance dog.
During 2022 the focus will be on supporting people with physical disabilities.
From 2023+ the client group will be widened – details will be provided in due course.
ADAA is registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in England (Registered number: 1191180)
WHO IS THE ASSESSMENT AIMED AT?
The ADAA assessment is for assistance dog teams where the dog is either:
Trained by a private trainer
Trained by an organisation (not accredited by ADI* or IGDF**).
Assessments will be carried out by highly experienced assistance dog assesors who will work with you to ensure it is a positive experience.
