Trevor talked about the expansion, that psychiatric service dogs will be included as an eligible expense. If you think of psychiatric service dogs in general, they can be tasked with, if people have severe anxiety, searching their homes before they enter. If someone is experiencing night terrors, applying compression can help improve the situation. For someone with post-traumatic stress disorder, if that person is having a disassociative episode, the dog could lick their hand to try to take them out of it. If someone has, partly related to that post-traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia—not wanting to leave their home—the dog can be trained to try to coax them to get out and engage more, to leave their home. Those would be some examples of the tasks that would be in mind.
