‘Classroom Canine Program’ assisting children to improve literacy skill
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Delta Therapy Dogs, an organisation we are very proud to have partnered with for the last 5 Year. This year Sheargold Foundation has granted $20,000 towards the 'Classroom Canine Program'.
Classroom Canines is a program aimed at supporting children who are experiencing difficulties with reading and writing.
Using specially trained volunteers and their attentive, loyal and non-judgmental dogs, Classroom Canines is a unique reading program with a focus on assisting children to improve literacy skills.
Volunteers and their dogs visit allocated school weekly, they can work individually with one child or in a group setting. The dog provides a non-judgmental acceptance of the student and help them to feel more engaged and excited to be a part of the reading program.
