Pediatric Grand Rounds: “Books, Brains, Bonds: New Chapters in Pediatric Literacy Promotion”

Perri Klass, MD

Professor of Journalism and Pediatrics, New York University National Medical Director, Reach Out and Read

Early literacy promotion in the setting of pediatric primary care, which is recommended as a best practice by the American Academy of Pediatrics, offers practical strategies to support parents.  This talk will discuss primary-care-based literacy promotion as a way of supporting cognitive and social emotional development in young children, as a strength-based strategy for enhancing positive parenting, and as a preventive strategy for addressing disparities by emphasizing reading together as a positive childhood experience, and building skills which enhance school readiness in populations at risk. The talk will include a review of exam room strategies, published evidence, and the Reach Out and Read model.
