Speaking in front of people ranks as one of the top fears many have. Reading in front of people can be even worse, especially if the reader perceives that their reading skills aren’t great. This is especially true for children.
Intermountain Therapy Animals has created the program R.E.A.D.® (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) to improve the literacy skills of children through the assistance of registered therapy teams as literary mentors.
And who guess who is a part of the therapy team: dogs. These dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team to be reading companions for children.
