Salt Creek students now have the opportunity to read to therapy dogs! The program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend that will lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more. The therapy dogs visit the school once a month.
