Downers Grove Pediatrics is a proud participant of the program, Reach out and Read (ROR). ROR is a national, nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness. We incorporate ROR into well child checkups beginning at age 6 months by giving each child a new book at every appointment and encouraging families to read together.
