Read ~ Lead ~ Succeed

The 2012-2013 campaign dubbed “Read, lead, succeed” focuses on the importance of early childhood literacy. When researching for projects SOMSRFT executive committee members learned that one-third of 4th graders read so poorly they cannot complete their schoolwork successfully and children who are read to regularly are 3-4 times less likely to drop out of school. Statistics like this coupled with recent budget cuts to important programs stood out to the group and inspired everyone to try and make changes.

Below you’ll find the resources that were distributed to all residency program delegates at the 2012 AAP National Conference & Exhibition SOMSRFT Assembly.
