Dog Therapy Program

There’s no better way to spend an afternoon. Through an innovative dog therapy program, students at Langford Middle School are showing improvements in behaviors. Lego, the Aussiedoodle, is a certified therapy dog; he is trained to help people who have anxiety, autism, and/or emotional behavior disorders. The program started about 4 months ago, and the benefits have been remarkable. Mr. Cunningham, a special education teacher at Langford, attributes the therapy to calming the students and giving them confidence. The school is hoping to expand the program to serve even more students.

What a great way to spend an afternoon.
