Bring the kids who are reluctant readers to improve their reading skills and become more confident readers by reading through a trained therapy dog.
Children can improve their reading skills by reading to a trained therapy dog. Sign up in advance and join the fun.
Have a reluctant reader? Studies show children who are reluctant to read in front of peers are much less anxious with an animal present. Children don't perceive animals to be judgmental; mere animal presence helps them become more confident readers. Pet Assisted Therapy teams and their handlers are from the Peninsula Humane Society & the SPCA’s Paws for Tales program.
Please note that the Humane Society requires a signed release form for each time a child reads. Please make sure Mom or Dad accompany the child.
