Two research-based home visiting programs support parents in their roles as their children's first and most important teachers.
Parents as Teachers (PAT) provides home visits for expectant mothers and children from birth-3 years old. Each bi-monthly visit includes activities that support parent-child interaction. Home visitors review the specific developmental stages and help parents work through barriers that can hinder the child's development.
Parent Child Home Visiting Program (PCHP) provides home visits that focus on language development for 2-3 year old children through interaction with educational books and toys. In each bi-weekly visit, a home visitor demonstrates how parents can use these carefully selected materials to maximize their verbal interactions with the child.
