Abstract

The Delta Society Australia Ltd. (Delta) Classroom CaninesTM program provides assistance to children who have difficulty with reading and writing, through a Delta dog and handler working with children (students) in a classroom setting. This research investigated the impact of the Classroom CaninesTM program on the reading and social/emotional skills of selected students at Woree State School, Cairns, from July 2013 to November 2013. It utilised both quantitative and qualitative data, including reading scores, attendance records, classroom observations, artefacts (work samples), interviews with teachers and students, and researcher journals.
