Achieva’s Books at Birth initiative provides every family giving birth in Forbes labor and delivery unit and West Penn’s NICU a book for their newborn.
The project encourages families to read to their child, prompting their baby to look, point, touch, and answer questions. This helps with social development and thinking skills. Babies improve language skills by copying sounds, recognizing pictures, and learning words.
Included with each book is a guide for parents regarding developmental milestones. As a child develops, their skills expand each month. Recognizing early warning signs for childhood problems can improve a child's chances for a joyful and independent future.
