The LEAP program offers children the opportunity to improve their reading skills and fosters an enthusiasm for reading by providing a fun, relaxed environment. LEAP uses PET Partner teams: volunteers with registered therapy animals that are tested and trained for temperament, skills, and health. Children who have participated in programs like LEAP have shown dramatic gains in reading levels and impressive improvement in self-esteem and other social skills as well.


Benefits of the LEAP program include:


•Children improve their reading skills in a unique and fun environment


•Children forget their limitations and develop a “can-do” attitude


•Tutoring is flexible and easy to implement

•Animals show how they can make a positive difference in the lives of children

•Tutors provide individualized instruction
