Parents as Teach Overview:
Parents As Teachers (PAT for short) is for parents with children ages birth to five. The program involves home visits led by trained Family Developmental Specialists. These one hour, twice a month visits focus on sharing age-appropriate child development and parenting information. A typical visit usually includes an age-specific activity for the child, allowing for parent-child interaction. Linked to the activity, a handout is given to parents explaining why the activity is important in their child’s development.
