Canine Assisted Therapy


Our Canine Assisted Learning (CAL) therapy sessions are dedicated to improving the mental health, emotional wellbeing and literacy of young people through professional canine support.

CAL at The Link School is delivered by Alison and therapy dogs Pixie and Daisy. They bring so much joy to our school, they support pupils with strategies for staying calm, reducing anxiety and some students like to read with them.

Pupils enjoy stroking and playing with the dogs – enhancing their love of dogs or simply overcoming any fears they may have.
