Can a knowledge of dogs help a boy with Asperger’s connect with people?

For anyone familiar with Asperger’s syndrome, 11-year-old Cory’s symptoms will come as no surprise: the autism spectrum disorder makes him frequently unable to read non-verbal social cues and obsessively focused on interests. Clearly intelligent but also very different from his peers, Cory suffers bullying and longs for acceptance at school. His parents hope that their son’s encyclopedic canine knowledge and, in particular, the family’s planned road trip to the National Dog Show in Philadelphia, might help Cory forge human connections.
