Research shows that therapy animals can help to reduce anxiety as well as improve focus and attention span. Therapy animals serve as a calm presence and allow children to work to improve literacy, comprehension, and communication with a nonjudgmental listener.

Teddy is a certified therapy pig that wants to support your child at EVPL North Park. Register for a 15 minute time slots on evpl.org or call ahead at +812-428-8237.

Does your child require special accommodations, such as extended time for transitions, sensory needs, or communication needs? If so, please call ahead to see what we can provide!
