On Monday, June 18, over 100 special education students and 50 staff had the most amazing day at Parkland Preparatory Academy in Streamwood, Illinois. They were visited by LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Tobias (Lord of Glory – Grayslake, Illinois), Zippy (Trinity – Roselle, Illinois), LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Brutus (LCC Squad), along with Comfort Dogs In Training Myra and Sage.
Thanks to the wonderful dogs and their handlers, the school visit was a therapeutic one. The students were given the opportunity to experience calm, nonjudgmental love from all and work on life skills such as taking turns, waiting patiently, and talking to new adults. Parkland will talk about this special day for many months to come.
Thank you LCC for giving these children such a beneficial experience.
