Overview

Mission Statement

Reach Out and Read gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. With unparalleled access to families with young children, Reach Out and Read medical providers give books to children during regular pediatric checkups from infancy until they start school, with special emphasis on children growing up in low-income communities. In addition, they encourage families to read aloud and engage with their infants, toddlers and preschoolers every day. Families served by Reach Out and Read read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills. When families read aloud to their young children, they can give them a better start to life.


Background Statement

In 1989, doctors and educators collaborated to create Reach Out and Read at Boston City Hospital (now Boston Medical Center). They developed our three-part model in response to a serious challenge they saw for their youngest patients: many families were not sharing stories regularly, and children were entering school unprepared to learn. The program that they created fit within the busy pediatric care environment: during regular checkups, doctors give each child a brand-new book to take home and keep. At the same time, they talk with the child’s parents about the critical importance of reading every day with young children to prepare them for kindergarten. Over our 27-year history, Reach Out and Read has expanded rapidly across the country, as medical providers recognize the value that it delivers for their patients and apply to participate. Today, we serve more than 4.5 million children and their parents in all 50 states.

We focus on children growing up in low-income families, because they are most at risk for reading failure. In fact, on average, children from economically disadvantaged households start kindergarten with a 12-14 month learning deficit. In order to ensure that our most at-risk learners are able to share stories with their families, we equip parents with the tools and information needed to make reading aloud part of a healthy daily routine.

Since 1991, fifteen independent studies have been published in medical journals confirming that our program works. Participating parents read with their children more often, and as a result, children gain vocabulary and other critical pre-reading skills.

Reach Out and Read's formal accolades include the 2013 David M. Rubenstein Prize, which is the Library of Congress's top literacy award, given in recognition of our "groundbreaking advancement of literacy." In 2007, Reach Out and Read was selected from an international field of organizations working in literacy and health to receive the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy, honoring outstanding merit in literacy and achieving particularly effective results. Our program has been endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), and many other health and education organizations. 

Impact Statement

Working through the existing medical infrastructure, our program is uniquely scalable and cost effective. As a result, since Reach Out and Read’s inception in 1989 we have expanded rapidly, and we now give books to more than 4.5 million children nationwide each year. During regular pediatric checkups at more than 5,500 clinical locations, our 21,000 medical providers instruct families on the importance of reading aloud, and give each child a developmentally-appropriate book.

Not only does our program have a strong national footprint, we also know that we have a significant impact on individual children and families. Fifteen independent studies published in medical journals prove that Reach Out and Read works: participating parents read up to ten times more often with their young children, and as a result, children gain vocabulary and other critical skills needed for school. In fact, during the preschool years, children served by our program score 3-6 months ahead of their non-Reach Out and Read peers on vocabulary tests.

In a significant milestone, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published a policy statement in 2014 which, for the first time ever, formally recommends that pediatricians incorporate into every well-child visit both books and advice about reading, referencing Reach Out and Read as an effective intervention. This is an amazing step for our organization and for early literacy efforts nationwide.

In the year ahead, we will focus on delivering an exceptional program for the 4.5 million children we currently serve, while also raising funds to support our program for future children. We are working with the AAP and other partners to identify additional steps toward ensuring that all children are able to receive our proven program, including strategies to secure sustainable funding. Together with our supporters, we are working to ensure that all children have the opportunity to realize their tremendous innate potential.


Needs Statement

This is a time of tremendous opportunity for Reach Out and Read, with wonderful publicity, increasing public awareness of early literacy, and the AAP’s groundbreaking policy statement. At the same time, the fundraising climate continues to be challenging, as we no longer receive the substantial government funding of previous years. We are working to build strong, diverse funding streams for our organization, partnering with both longtime and new supporters to ensure a sustainable program. Reach Out and Read is focusing our resources on the children we currently serve, rather than expansion to reach new children. We are enhancing quality for our programs, which reach 4.5 million children nationwide, in order to maximize our positive impact on families. We know that when our program is implemented with high fidelity to our model, children and parents receive the outcomes reflected in our evidence base: parents read more often with children, and children gain pre-reading skills. Contributions to Reach Out and Read put books into the hands of children, help us enhance quality, and build a sustainable program for the future.

Programs

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read prepares America's youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. Doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals incorporate Reach Out and Read's evidence-based, three-part model into regular pediatric checkups:
1) In the pediatric exam room, pediatricians speak to parents about the importance of reading aloud to their children every day, and offer age-appropriate tips and encouragement.
2) At each regular checkup from 6 months through 5 years of age, the child receives a new, culturally- and developmentally-appropriate book to take home and keep.
3) Many Reach Out and Read program sites create literacy-rich environments that include gently-used books for waiting room use and/or volunteer readers to model for parents the techniques of reading aloud to young children.
Parents incorporate advice received through pediatric visits and make reading aloud part of their daily routine.

Program Short-Term Success 
Fifteen published, peer-reviewed research studies support the efficacy of Reach Out and Read; this is a more extensive body of research than for any other psychosocial intervention in general pediatrics. Parents who participate in Reach Out and Read demonstrate significant changes in how frequently they read to their children, and in their beliefs and attitudes toward reading aloud. Reach Out and Read parents are up to 10 times more likely to read regularly with their children. As a result, children who have participated in Reach Out and Read enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, stronger language skills, and a love of reading, prepared to learn to read. The advice and instruction conveyed to parents at regular pediatric visits profoundly impacts daily parental behaviors, making reading part of children's daily routines.
Program Long-Term Success 
Reach Out and Read is working toward the day when every child enters kindergarten supported by highly engaged parents and prepared to excel. Tragically, many young children, particularly those from low-income families, are not building a strong foundation for academic success by sharing books with their families. Parents may have difficulty fitting reading into busy schedules, may not be able to read well or read English, lack children’s books in the home, or have no prior experience of being read to when they were children. Furthermore, despite the clear link between reading in the early years and academic achievement, many parents are not aware of the powerful impact daily shared reading has on their children. Compounding these issues, growing up in poverty is one of the greatest threats to healthy child development; it can impede children’s cognitive development and their ability to learn. Because of these challenges, on average, children from economically disadvantaged households start kindergarten with a 12-14 month learning deficit.
Reading aloud is a proven method to ensure that young children gain the vocabulary and other pre-reading skills that are essential to enter school at grade level, on the path to academic success. A particularly deep impact is possible in the early years, given that the period between birth and age 6 is an incredible window of opportunity, with over 90% of brain development occurring during this time. According to researchers Betty Hart and Todd Risley, the size of a child’s vocabulary is correlated most closely to the number of words parents speak to the child, and in their study children living in poverty lagged behind their peers in vocabulary development. Furthermore, a 2012 longitudinal study showed a causal relationship between early print knowledge and later literacy skills; that is, increasing young children's contact with print during shared reading resulted in long-term increases in reading, spelling, and comprehension. In addition, reading aloud with parents is an important bonding and nurturing experience that helps children to learn and thrive. By engaging parents to read regularly with their children, Reach Out and Read helps our most at-risk young learners enter school with the foundational literacy skills needed for academic success.
Program Success Monitored By 
We know from our evidence base that when implemented with fidelity to our model, Reach Out and Read delivers results for children and parents. Therefore, we are committed to regular and comprehensive program evaluation and improvement. Our programmatic staff provide oversight to ensure that the program is correctly implemented, including: 1) 100% of our books are developmentally and culturally-appropriate, 2) a brand new book is distributed at each well-child visit for children ages 6 months through 5 years, and 3) the books are consistently accompanied by developmental guidance and advice from the doctor.
Examples of Program Success 

“Just yesterday I had a 2-year well-child check for a patient in which the mother was concerned about her child's speech development.  Mother stated that the child did not speak more than 5 words.  When I gave the child the book and discussed Reach out and Read with the mother, she stated we really need to work on reading more in our house.  This opened up the door for me to discuss that reading to the child daily will increase his vocabulary.  While I was visiting with mom, the child was looking through the book and pointing at pictures. I began to say ‘dog’ and ‘ball’ as he pointed to the pictures.  He repeated ‘da’ and ‘ba.’  The mother was amazed at how this little interaction between myself and the child allowed for him to attempt to speak two more words.  This was a great example of how Reach Out and Read has such a positive impact on the children of the community.” – Doctor in Arkansas 


Special Initiative: American Indian/Alaska Native Initiative

The Reach Out and Read American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Initiative was established in 2007 as a partnership between the Committee on Native American Child Health (CONATCH) of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Indian Health Service (IHS), and Reach Out and Read. Through this initiative, we deliver our proven three-part early literacy program to AI/AN children at Indian Health Service/Tribal/Urban clinics nationwide. We offer culturally-appropriate books as well as books in Native American languages.

Participation in Reach Out and Read's model of prescribing books and encouraging parents to read aloud at home guarantees changes in parental behavior and improvement in children's school readiness. Our evidence base of studies shows that parents who have participated in Reach Out and Read are four times more likely to read aloud to their children, and children who have participated in the program arrive at school with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills.

Program Long-Term Success 

Reach Out and Read is working toward the day when all children enter kindergarten supported by highly-engaged parents, performing at grade level, and prepared to excel. By tailoring our program to the specific needs of AI/AN children, we can better help them gain the early literacy skills needed to realize their full potential.

Special Initiative: Leyendo Juntos (Reading Together)

The Leyendo Juntos (Reading Together) Initiative assists primary care providers in effectively encouraging Spanish-speaking parents and extended family members to read with their children. Leyendo Juntos follows the model of pediatric guidance, prescribing books, and encouraging parents to read aloud at home, emphasizing respect for patients' cultures and primary language. The initiative builds upon best practices that medical providers at various levels of linguistic proficiency (e.g. native Spanish speakers, near-fluent speakers, and those who speak medically-appropriate Spanish) use to emphasize the importance of early literacy to Spanish-speaking families. Parents understand the critical impact reading together has on their child's development and future school success. Special tools, such as a Spanish Language Literacy Promotion Guide, Spanish-language books and materials, and Reach Out and Read's Spanish-language website, help medical providers better serve Latino/Hispanic families.

Program Short-Term Success 

Reach Out and Read's model of prescribing books and encouraging parents to read aloud at home is proven to change parental behaviors and improve educational outcomes for children participating in the program.

The Leyendo Juntos initiative is proven to offer positive benefits for participating Spanish-speaking families. According to an independent study, Hispanic parents whose children had received bilingual books, educational materials, and literacy-promoting anticipatory guidance were more likely to report reading aloud with their children at least three days per week, and that reading was one of their three favorite activities (Golova et al. "Literacy Promotion for Hispanic families in a primary care setting: A randomized controlled trial." Pediatrics 1998; 103, p. 993-997).

Program Long-Term Success 

Reach Out and Read aims to ensure that all Spanish-speaking children enter kindergarten with highly-engaged parents, performing at grade level, and prepared to excel.

Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  "One of my patients is a 1-year-old girl from a Spanish-speaking family. Sometimes I give her bilingual books in Spanish and English, sometimes I give her books in Spanish. At her last checkup, her mother began to cry explaining how upset she was that she could not read to her daughter in English. I told her about an adult literacy program in the area, and she's already started the classes. Reach Out and Read doesn't just affect the life of the child - it can improve the literacy of everyone in the home."
-- Reach Out and Read Pediatrician, San Diego, CA 

Special Initiative: Reach Out and Read in the Military

In 2006, we launched our Military Families Initiative to deliver our program to children living on U.S. military bases. Military families face unique pressures, including separation, deployment, or even the death of a parent. Reading aloud to children is a proven technique to help them cope with the stress and anxiety that these difficult situations cause. When families read aloud together regularly, children enjoy the stability of a routine while gaining the foundational skills needed to learn to read. Furthermore, we offer a number of books which deal with military themes, including titles like While You Are Away, Kissing Hand, and Home Again.

Reach Out and Read is working toward the day when all children enter kindergarten supported by highly-engaged parents, performing at grade level, and prepared to excel. By tailoring our program to the specific needs of children in military families, we can better help them cope with the unique pressures they face and gain the early literacy skills needed to realize their full potential. 

Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  “Our community is a transient one that sees cyclical deployments to war zones, often leaving behind family members for a year at a time. There are many issues associated with this such as single parenting/reintegration issues, lack of parental support, and a changing family structure. These young families struggle to survive and often times don't have the time and energy to be active reading proponents. Community support for both parents and children to stress the importance of literacy is key.” - Reach Out and Read Program Coordinator

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?



3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?



4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?
