Since its inception in 2011, Read to Sydney has made a significant impact on the community. Thanks to the generous support of donors, such as Beta Theta-ESA, the organization’s outreach continues to grow each year.  

When a child learns to read, regardless of their physical or mental limitations, their world no longer has boundaries. Reading can transport a person to places they might only dream of visiting or provide adventures they can only imagine. This transformative power of reading is the driving force behind Read to Sydney, a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to making reading fun and accessible for all children, with or without disabilities.

A therapy dog offers a judgment-free zone filled with patience and quiet acceptance. The benefits of reading to therapy dogs extend far beyond literacy; they elevate a child’s self-esteem, provide comfort, reinforce learning, motivate speech, and teach positive and appropriate social behaviors. For autistic children and those with learning disabilities, the interaction with a trained and accredited therapy dog opens new doors to learning.
