Bonnie & Maggie Ask are new additions to the PAWH (Pets Assisting With Healing) team on the St. Paul campus. With Bonnie’s help, Maggie has become a registered therapy dog through the Delta Society. Last week, Bonnie & Maggie assisted occupational therapist Emily DeBreto with one of her sessions. Emily’s patient was working on handwriting and grasping skills with a writing tool. To make the session fun and interesting, Emily asked the patient to interview Bonnie about Maggie. After the patient finished her interview, she turned it into a story and wrote it on paper. This patient learned sentence-building without even knowing it!
Huge thanks to Bonnie and Maggie!
