Early Literacy

EarlyLiteracyLogoThe Ohio AAP Foundation is very passionate about supporting early literacy around the state of Ohio. The science about how children learn to read is unanimous – the single most important thing that adults can do to prepare children to succeed is to read aloud to them when they are young.

The Foundation is committed to supporting Ohio AAP members who participate in evidence-based early literacy programs such as Reach Out and Read.

For more information about Reach Out and Read, contact Lori LeGendre, Coalition Leader, at Lori.Legendre@utoledo.edu or visit the Reach Out and Read Website.

The Foundation is constantly working to secure funding to support early literacy initiatives, but there is still a great need for more resources.

If you or someone you know has any new or gently used children’s books that they would like to donate, please contact the Ohio AAP Foundation at 614.846.6258.
