Keywords:accommodations, Americans with Disabilities Act, emotional support animals
The use of service animals as an accommodation for a person with a disability is no longer viewed with uncertainty, and the rise of service animals across a myriad of related health, behavioral health, and education settings speaks to its proclivity.
