Reading to a therapy dog can help children who struggle with reading.  Our friend, Danny the Cocker Spaniel, is an expert listener who is always encouraging, supportive, and patient with all children who interact with him.  During a “Sit Stay Read” session, the dog is a therapeutic distraction technique that relieves children of their anxiety and allows them to perform better when reading.

Children who are reading can sign up to read to Danny for 15 minutes each month at the Weaver and Riverside Libraries.

 

Call 401-434-2453 to schedule a 15 min. session at Weaver Library with Danny!
