reach outReach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers. Reach Out and Read helps develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The families who participate read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten better prepared to succeed, with larger vocabularies, stronger language skills, and a six-month developmental edge over their peers.
