AAP Chapters and Title V Working Together

 "How 3 AAP chapters and Title V are improving the lives of children with special needs" was published in the July issue of AAP News in collaboration with the National Center for Medical Home Implementation at the AAP and our partners at the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP). The"Top 10 things pediatricians should know about Title V"  sidebar article serves as a complementary piece. Beyond educating pediatricians about and linking them to Title V in their states, AAP Chapters that have successful collaborations were highlighted. Special thanks to Drs Romano, Meyers, and Hood (from the OH, WI and WA Chapters, respectively) for sharing their stories. Please note that the article is open to the public, not just AAP News subscribers.

A New National Effort at CGI America to Help Close the Word Gap

American Academy of Pediatrics, Reach Out and Read, and Scholastic Inc. are working with Too Small to Fail to equip parents with tools to promote early literacy and vocabulary development.

At the fourth annual Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) America meeting in Denver, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a new collaborative effort of Too Small to Fail, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Scholastic Inc. and Reach Out and Read to raise awareness among parents about early language development. For the first time the AAP will promote early literacy-beginning from an infant's very first days-as an "essential" component of primary care visits. Through this commitment, the partners will ensure that doctors, parents and caregivers have the information, tools and books they need to promote reading out loud to children every day starting in infancy.


The effort takes a multi-pronged approach toward equipping parents with the best tools to ensure that their children are prepared to learn as they enter school.
