Marley and Mrs. Kathy Bring Joy to HEP

The children at HEP know that when Mrs. Kathy visits, they are in for a very special treat! Working through “Canines Helping Kids”, Mrs. Kathy’s visits aren’t complete without her friend, Marley! Visiting once each week, Mrs. Kathy and Marley participate with the children on a wide range of activities, including having the children take turns reading to Marley during homework time. Studies have shown that by reading to a pet, such as a dog or cat, children are able to relax as threats of being judged are eliminated. This allows children to practice reading skills, helping to build self-esteem and focus on reading rather than on outside interferences.
