Reach Out and Read Program
Dr. Richard Keith believes strongly in the Reach Out and Read Program and was committed to bringing the program to Gila Valley Clinic and our pediatric patients. His dream of bringing this program to our clinic became a reality in September 2011.
The Reach Out and Read Model Pediatric Healthcare Providers (including Pediatricians, Family Physicians, and Pediatric Nurse Practitioners) are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness: In the exam room, doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day, and offer age-appropriate tips and encouragement. The pediatric primary care provider gives every child 6 months through 5 years old a new, developmentally-appropriate children's book to take home and keep.
In the waiting room, displays, information, and books create a literacy-rich environment. Where possible, volunteer readers engage the children, modeling for parents the pleasures - and techniques - of reading aloud. Families served by Reach Out and Read program read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, stronger language skills, and a six-month developmental edge.
