Investing in Impact.
Reach Out and Read sits at the nexus of New York State’s efforts to strengthen the connections between learning and health so that early in infancy, families start to support literacy, parent-child interaction, and healthy social-emotional development.
Reach Out and Read succeeds by using trusted healthcare providers to engage parents and children, sharing the joys and power of early literacy, and advancing New York’s goal of improving outcomes in several healthcare quality domains and across the lifespan—from childhood through adulthood.
