Ages & Stages

Reading aloud – beginning in infancy – is a wonderful way to build your child's language skills. When parents read, talk and sing with their babies and toddlers, connections are formed and reinforced in children's developing brains. These connections build language, literacy, social and emotional skills at a critical time in a child's development and secure the bond between parent and child.

Pediatrician Pamela High, MD, FAAP, joins the Healthy Children show on RadioMD to share insights on reading and early literacy development in children.
