Reach Out and Read is a national program that promotes early literacy by bringing new books and advice about reading aloud into the pediatric exam room.
ROR is based on three components at each well child visit between the ages of 6 months to 5 years:
- New age appropriate books are given to the child
- Pediatric Healthcare Providers talk to parents about the importance of using books and reading aloud with their child
- Literacy Rich Environment - Waiting rooms and exam rooms use books and decorations to reinforce reading aloud to your child as a top priority.
