Reach Out and Read Program
Reach Out and Read is working toward the day when all children enter kindergarten supported by highly engaged parents, ready to learn, and prepared to excel. Fewer than half (48 percent) of young children in the United States are read to daily. Proficiency in reading by the end of third grade is a crucial marker in a child's education development. A stunning 66 percent of fourth graders in public school were reading below proficient levels in 2013.
Books at home, parents reading aloud, and early language skills have long demonstrated to be vital precursors to later success in learning to read. Children living in low-income families are exposed to a much less language rich environment than their more affluent peers.
The program begins at the 6-month checkup and continues through age 5, with a special emphasis on children growing up in low-income families, where children are most at risk for reading failure. Every child in the program enters kindergarten with a home library of at least 10 books and parents who understand the importance of reading aloud.
What's different about a medical home?
Each patient partners with a primary care clinician and nurses who take responsibility for your health and coordinate care with an extended team of behavioral health professionals, pharmacists, sub-specialists and others. Your core team works with you over time to take care of new health concerns as they arise, ensure delivery of preventive screening and services, manage chronic health problems, and promote a spirit of health and wellness. This relationship – between each patient and his or her health care team is the heart of the Medical Home.
Enhanced Role of Nursing
When you do come in for a visit, you will notice that your nurse plays a greater role than you might be used to. Your nurse will spend more time listening to your concerns, help you communicate those concerns to your doctor, and then make sure that you understand the care plan and that all of your questions are answered.
