Pals For Life - Education Programs
Pals For Life brings appropriate therapy animals to schools and educational centers to teach proper pet care and interaction. This education program provides the following benefits: --Teaches children how to care for their animals – how to train them, how to take care of them, and what their pet is trying to tell them. Teachers will also tie in the lessons they learned with their own lives as well. For example, when discussing how an animal communicates non-verbally, the children are able to think about how they also communicate with their own body language and how to read another person’s body language, an important life skill. --Stress the importance of having a calm body and calm voice around animals. Pals For Life will work with children on the autism spectrum and other special needs who often have challenges with self control, both verbally and physically. Using the animals as incentive and reward for maintaining a calm body and calm voice, the children are able to practice their self-control, and are rewarded with a cuddle from a snuggly dog. Teachers are often amazed at the difference in behavior of their students when the animals are around. --Teach about animal-related careers and other ways animals help their community. Pals For Life raises awareness about service animals, therapy animals and seizure-alert dogs. In addition, the children learn about careers to explore if they are interested in animals.
