Barbara Vokatis

Associate Professor,Coordinator Of Literacy Programs & Clinics
SUNY Oneonta

I am an educator with 30 years of international experience in education. I hold four types of teaching certificates.
I am also an international expert in incorporating dog therapy in education to promote learning across all subject areas in ways not yet seen in practice and literature. Experimental/innovative dog therapy in educational settings begins to show amazing benefits for children’s well being as well as growing engagement and motivation across all subjects. I am proud to be one of the first innovators in this area. Please check out my book, “Teachers and therapy dog teams: Innovative collaborations to make a difference for children.”
In addition, I am an award-winning author of children’s books that promote dog therapy.
