TDI’S READING PROGRAM
Children Reading to Dogs
We have a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a reading program which will provide a relaxed and “dog-friendly” atmosphere for students to practice their reading skills. They will read with Riley, a trained therapy dog. Riley, a Yellow Lab, is part of the TDI program; to learn more go to www.tdi-dog.org
Riley will visit classrooms and/or work with students one-on-one during reading time. Riley’s owner, who is also trained, will assist Riley and students with the Children Reading to Dogs program.
