Support and Comfort
Our Therapy Teams supply unique, irreplaceable support in classrooms where reading is not the focus of the therapy team/student relationship.
These visits may include children who are:
- Challenged with Down’s Syndrome
- Multiple Handicapped
- Non-responsive to traditional stimulus
- Confronting challenges that require special or individualized care, and prohibit their inclusion in a typical classroom.
“One of our special needs students only calmed down when he was with the therapy dog. We put a lock of the dog’s hair in a plastic bag in his pocket to touch when he needed relief. This got him over a bad patch in second grade.” —Volunteer
