Paws 4 Stories | Ages 6 – 12

Kids with reading challenges can practise their oral reading skills by signing up to read with a certified Paws 4 Stories therapy dog. Research shows that reading to a dog is tremendously motivational for kids and also provides a calming, relaxed environment for children who may be feel hesitant or anxious about reading.

Sessions are 15 minutes. Kids must be school-aged, able to read some English on their own and comfortable reading with a dog and the dog’s adult handler.
