Canines Help Children learn to Read

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

They're known as Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D), and they're helping young children to improve their literacy. Founded by Intermountain Therapy Animals, the program at Dana Street Elementary in Forty Fort, PA. was recently discussed in this article. The first and second graders are assisted by two dogs - Thor and Puli.

"At Dana, the kids take turns reading to the dogs in person, then write to them - often on bone-shaped paper - while waiting for the next visit."
