THERAPY DOGS INTERNATIONAL

PROGRAM GOAL AND OBJECTIVE:
The main objective of this program is to provide a relaxed and “dog-friendly” atmosphere, which allows a child to practice the skill of reading. Many of the children that come to this program have difficulties reading and as a result have developed self-esteem issues. They are often self-conscious when reading aloud in front of other classmates. By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes, pats the attentive dog, and focuses on the reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant.
