The Read2Dogs scheme provided by Pets As Therapy (PAT) helps to improve literacy skills and wellbeing in young people by developing their confidence, interest and enjoyment in reading. Some students feel incredibly nervous and stressed when asked to read aloud, regardless of whether they’re in a classroom or having a one-to-one session with a teacher.
Read2Dogs helps to improve literacy skills and well-being and develops confidence, interest and enjoyment in reading. Dogs are non-judgemental and great listeners and encourages positive social behaviours and enhances self-esteem for pupils. Parents will be contacted directly and an agreement completed prior to sessions starting.
