Johnson County Pediatrics Kicks Off Early Literacy Program

Johnson County Pediatrics is proud to be the 80th site in Kansas to participate in “Turn a Page. Touch a Mind.” This innovative early literacy program serves Kansas children ages 6 months to five years old. Sponsored by the Kansas Pediatric Foundation, JoCoPeds kicked off the program on Monday, April 13th.

When Johnson County Pediatrics patients come to their well checks at 6 months of age, 9 months, 12 months, 24 months, 3 years, 4 years and 5 yearstheir pediatricians will be presenting them with books. The books are developmentally appropriate, and our doctors will discuss with parents the value of reading aloud daily.

“We are so pleased and excited to be working with the Kansas Pediatric Foundation on the TAP-TAM program,” said Dr. Christine White, a pediatrician at Johnson County Pediatrics. “Our goal here is to raise happy and healthy children and we know encouraging reading at an early age is a big part of that. We are looking forward to handing out books to our patients.”

TAP-TAM is based on a simple but powerful premise: encourage parents to read to their children and give them the tools (or books) to do so.

“We are just thrilled with the success and growth of TAP-TAM over the last several years,” said   Chris Steege, KPF executive director. “The addition of Johnson County Pediatrics is exciting because we will reach even more children each year.”

Currently, there are 81 TAP-TAM sites in 45 counties in Kansas that will distribute over 125,000 books this year. The impact of these books, with the reinforcement of daily reading from the child’s physician, will last far into the future, as Kansas kids start school ready to learn to read.

A child’s doctor is in a unique position to encourage reading because they are a trusted source of guidance and have ongoing contacts through well-child visits. Parents are motivated to follow through and make reading to their children a part of their daily routine. Children who are introduced to books early in life will enter school with the skills to succeed.

The Kansas Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics developed this program for Kansas children, and it has been endorsed by the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians.
