(Reading Education Assistance Dogs)

Sometimes, kids who are learning to read get stressed, not because they aren't capable of reading, but because they get nervous and self-conscious. They worry about making mistakes, they worry about looking dumb--and all those worries make it hard to focus. They dread reading in front of their friends, so they often "freeze up" and things just get worse.

When they read with a dog, right away they start to relax, and then they forget about feeling self-conscious or nervous, and pretty soon things start to flow a little better. Before they know it, they are enjoying the experience of reading instead of dreading it. They are even looking forward to the next time. It is simple, and it works beautifully!
