  • PAT children outscored their peers on measures of school readiness and later school achievement.
  • PAT children performed better than non-PAT children in elementary school. 
  • PAT was found to reduce placement in special education; lower incidence of abuse and neglect. 
  • PAT parents took a more active role in their children’s schooling than did non-PAT parents.

Parents as Teachers is designed to assist ALL FAMILIES with children from birth to age three in becoming their children's first teachers.
