At Highbar, we care for people of all ages, including children. And it's important to us that some of the local organizations we support are focused on helping children in our communities. We're proud to continue to support Reach Out and Read Rhode Island!
Reach Out and Read Rhode Island is a research-supported program that provides children with books during pediatric checkups so that families can read to their children at home. There are a number of reasons why reading is good for a child, and their family's, wellbeing!
"Reach Out and Read Rhode Island is a nonprofit that champions the positive effects of reading daily and engaging in other language-rich activities with young children. Reading together promotes healthy brain development, furthers language acquisition, and helps families build meaningful bonds."
As a sponsor of Reach Out and Read Rhode Island's Annual Celebration, some of our pediatric physical therapists attended the celebration. See some photos of our team, on our Facebook page!
