Ochsner Introduces Literacy Program to Promote Healthy Minds
Date:5/28/2009

ts, as a young girl, Payette tutored deaf children and adults in reading and math and, during her medical residency; she worked as a Reach Out and Read Coordinator. When her son was born with developmental delays, Payette realized the importance of exposing him to books and music to help him overcome language and speech delays.

"Detecting communication disorders early in childhood is critical because it allows children to make more significant progress in their delays," says Dr. Payette. "With plenty of hard work and early intervention, Spencer is doing very well and is graduating from Kindergarten this year and was chosen to be in an advanced reading program. I'm so proud of my son and the hurdles he's overcome."

"Reach Out and Read increases dialogue between parents and physicians. When we read to children, we give them a gift that lasts a lifetime," explains Dr. Daniel Bronfin. "As a father and pediatrician, I've found that reading to a child and encouraging literacy helps spark imagination and provides children with a lasting foundation for learning."

Reach Out and Read is a national nonprofit organization based in Boston that promotes early literacy by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud. Nationally, this year physicians will give out five million new books to three million families in the U.S through Reach Out and Read (www.reachoutandread.org.)
