This is a stressful time for all of us, and especially for young learners. Many learners need a faithful friend to bring to help navigate through troubling times at school or at home. Empower your learners to figure out how to get a therapy dog at your school. There are plenty of obstacles along the way, including allergies, city regulations and permits, liability concerns, cost of food and maintenance, among others. This is a great project that will keep giving back all year long for those quietly in need of someone to hug.
