Lisa Perovich and Boone Read with Joe Welcome to Pawsitive Steps LLC

PinkBook w/Pawprint
Pawsitive Steps LLC provides animal-assisted coaching to help children develop or improve their reading skills. The program is based on the nationally-recognized Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.®) model, which was established by Intermountain Therapy Animals in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1999.
GreenBook w/Pawprint
Reading to a dog presents an opportunity to practice in the company of an attentive, unbiased listener. The relaxed atmosphere allows a child to proceed at his/her own pace without fear or intimidation, and the facilitator works with the dog to assist the reader with pronunciation or comprehension challenges.
BlueBook w/Pawprint
Sessions at Pawsitive Steps LLC are fun experiences that build confidence, encourage social interaction, and motivate continued progress toward improved vocabulary, comprehension and fluency. The goal is to foster a postive attitude toward reading and learning.
