Waymart Pups Participate in Transition Expo
October 26, 2019 12:00 AM
On Oct. 22, SCI Waymart staff associated with Paws for a Cause participated in the Transition Expo 2019 held at Ladore Lodge. Four high schools attended: Honesdale, Western Wayne, Wallenpaupack and Forest City. It is a great opportunity for students with disabilities to learn about the different options and resources available to them.
Presenters assembled into breakout sessions for attendees and spoke to the group for approximately 20 minutes. Service-dogs-in-training Zyla and Zee participated with Jody Smith, unit manager, Kathy Millard, clerk typist 2, and Maria Losapio, counselor. Smith explained how the dog program works and its purpose and then answered questions. The students who attended were then introduced to the dogs and able to pet them. The pups loved the attention, and the students loved petting them.
