Reach Out and Read promotes a love of literacy
Posted on 11/04/2015
Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based non-profit organization of medical providers who promote pre-literacy and school readiness in the examining rooms of family practitioners and pediatricians nationwide by giving new books to children and advising parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Physicians who participate in the program promote the development of pre-literacy skills at ten well-child visits between the ages of six months to five years, making literacy promotion a standard of pediatric care. Physicians use books as tools within developmental screening to determine if children are being read to and are developing properly.
