R.E.A.D. Program

 

 

 

 

The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to an animal. But not just any animal. R.E.A.D. companions are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children.

Jacqueline and Wesley visit our classroom every Tuesday.  

The students really enjoy reading with them.
