Brief Summary of Lecture
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.
