The ITA R.E.A.D. program is touching hearts across the nation. The following is a partial list of R.E.A.D. Affiliate Programs, Regional Workshops, and individual R.E.A.D teams. It is our hope that this list will help put R.E.A.D. teams in contact with programs and workshops in their area. If you would like to add your program to this list please send an email to the National R.E.A.D. Coordinator at the ITA office (read@therapyanimals.org).

States ending in
