Families with children aged 6 months to 5 years are prime candidates for Reach Out and Read® activities.
Here’s three ways Reach Out and Read® can be implemented in your practice:
- Turn waiting rooms into reading rooms – Families can enter a literacy-rich environment with books and displays around early literacy.
- Request volunteer readers – While children wait on their appointment, a volunteer reader scheduled for your location can host a story time activity at your practice.
- Offer a prescription for reading – Reach Out and Read® has a custom prescription form to recommend reading.
