Reach Out and Read Colorado bolsters the reading habits and abilities of young children with an early literacy-and-parent-education program that focuses especially on children from low-income homes. Working with area doctors, nurse-practitioners, and other medical professionals, Reach Out and Read Colorado distributes developmentally appropriate books to children during routine doctor visits, and encourages their parents to read aloud to them.
Reach Out and Read Colorados medical partners meet with parents and children at their regular doctors visits, starting at the 6-month checkup and continuing through age 5. The organization distributes developmentally appropriate books to more than 82,000 children each year, and its partners discuss with parents the importance of reading aloud to children at an early age. By encouraging reading in young children, Reach Out and Read Colorado aims to increase their vocabularies and strengthen their language skills to prepare them to begin kindergarten.
