Meet Maui the therapy dog


My names is Maui, I am the newest member of the Theraputic Intervention Team.

I’m a therapy dog and I really love working at Unified Academy. In Fact, I enjoy it so much that I have decided to write my own Dog Blog, so you can see what I’ve been up to.

If you see me around school, I really love snacks, head scratches, cuddles and seeing all your happy faces.

See you soon,

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
