PAWSing to R.E.A.D. is a reading enrichment program just for them.  Participants read to a therapy dog once a week for  30 minutes over six weeks.

The dogs and their handlers are therapy team registered and certified through Delta Society Pet Partners, Tufts Paws for People, and have completed the Reading Education Assistance Dogs workshop.  They regularly visit schools, hospitals, and group homes.  The animals are groomed before each visit – bath, teeth brushed, and thoroughly brushed.

A 2010 study  by the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University found that children who read to the dogs showed an improvement in comprehension and desire to read.

The program will begin Wednesday evening October 9 in Room 33 (second floor) of the Municipal Center and run each Wednesday until November 13.  There will be two time slots – 5:00 to 5:30 p.m.  and 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. with four spaces available per time slot.

If you think your child could benefit, please register by calling the Children’s Room, Grafton Public Library at 508-839-4649.  Space is limited, so register early.
