Dr. Cara Miller, an associate professor of psychology and faculty member in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., has a deep appreciation for her unique canine partners who have been by her side. Together with her service dog, Frankie, they work on new sounds that people with hearing may take for granted, such as the shrill whistle of the teakettle; the sirens from approaching emergency vehicles; or the sound of someone calling out their name. Frankie empowers her to make every day Independence Day.

Happy Disability Pride Month!

July is Disability Pride Month! Our mission is to provide greater independence to people with disabilities by partnering them with expertly trained service dogs. Throughout the month, we will be featuring client stories from across the country, highlighting what disability pride means to them – and how their service dogs have impacted their lives.
