Parents as Teachers/Birth to Five YearsParents as Teachers (PAT) is a voluntary early childhood parent education program based on the philosophy that parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.
· Personal Visits- personalized home visits by certified parent educators, who are trained in child development, help parents understand what to expect in each stage of their child's development.
· Group Meetings- parents get together to gain new insights and to share their experiences, common concerns, and successes.
· Screening- periodic screening of overall development, language, hearing, and vision. Thegoal is to provide early detection of potential problems to prevent difficulties later in school.
· Resource Network- linkage with providers of needed services that are beyond the scope of the program.
