A memory screen is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory. It creates a baseline so future changes can be monitored. Specialists from the Aging & Disability Resource Center will provide these free 15-minute, confidential memory screenings and will have information about memory, memory clinics, brain health and local resources that are available.

Story Room
Monday, Nov. 19, 4:40-6pm
or call 608-222-6127.
Independent readers may register to read for 20 minutes to a specially trained Reading Education Assistance Dog.
The program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a therapy animal. But not just any animal. Dogs on Call teams are Pet Partners registered therapy animals as well as Read With Me teams that volunteer with their handler going to schools, libraries, and many other settings as reading companions for children.
    Learning to read is often less about intellectual limitation than about overcoming fears. Animals are ideal reading companions because they:
  • Help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure.
  • Listen attentively.
  • Do not laugh, judge, or criticize.
  • Allow children to proceed at their own pace.
  • Are less intimidating than peers.
  • Learn more here.

ALLERGIES?
"Therapy animals are scrupulously clean and well-groomed before each session, which helps. Many therapy dogs are treated with a dander remover product and body deodorizer before they volunteer. If a child suffers from severe allergies or asthma, reading with a dog might not be appropriate or enjoyable."
