This program is for struggling readers who will be paired with licensed therapy dogs and their handlers. For children in Kindergarten and up. Please note that pre-registration is necessary for these sessions. Parents of homeschoolers and interested parents, if you have questions, please contact Rita Hunt-Smith at 533-6555 ext. 3707. A selection of suitable reading material is provided for the children to read to the dogs. Studies have shown that this is a successful means of providing practice in a relaxed and comforting atmosphere.
