Description

Tail Waggin’ Tutors @ The Washington County Jonesborough Library

 

Do you have a child who is a reluctant reader?  Perhaps they lack the confidence to read aloud or feel frustrated or teased over their reading level.  Let Tail Waggin’ Tutors help! 


Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.
