R.E.A.D. with Myia!

 Call 252-728-1333 to register


     This program is the Reading Education Assistant Dogs Program, and is dedicated to improving the reading skills and interests of participants through the use of a registered therapy team as literacy mentors. Having been trained as a Coastal Carolina Pet Provided Therapy Team, Jack Orton and Myia are the perfect duo for this program. When we offer these events, a sign-up sheet will be available ahead of time at the Down East Public Library for people to register to read to Myia for a 15 minute period of time. We hope to offer this worthwhile program again soon!
