Amy Kotha's Story
Maya is a beautiful teen with a sensitive soul.
Exceptionally compassionate and nurturing, her parents share that she loves helping others and often does so without expectations. She wants to improve other people's lives, especially if she can support other kids facing similar struggles. This is why she's open to sharing her story, especially if doing so also helps fight stigmas.
Maya is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, and a Connective Tissue Disorder.
These comorbid conditions have a significant impact on Maya, depriving her of the everyday experiences that most teens take for granted. Simple activities like hanging out at the mall with friends, attending a favorite band's concert, or eating at a restaurant with family have become elusive. They have not only affected her physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life but have also turned each day into a relentless battle for this beloved girl and her family.

Good Dog! Autism Companions was founded in 2011 by the parents of an autistic boy. After getting a service dog for their son, they soon realized the life-changing benefits these dogs could provide to so many more. Today, Good Dog! Service Canines provides highly trained service dogs to children with disabilities and their families, helping them live better lives! Each dog is professionally trained using only positive reinforcement methods because we believe the true power of the human/canine bond is brought about through a loving, trusting relationship. Good Dog! Autism Companions, founded in 2011, has expanded its services to help more kids and families. We are now doing business as Good Dog! Service Canines. Thanks to all whose support let the love grow!
