What Are the Benefits of Parents As Teachers?

Numerous independent evaluations have shown that Parents As Teachers can have a positive impact on families. Evaluation studies have found: 

- PAT children have significantly enhanced language, problem solving and social development at age 3.

- Parents involved in the Parents As Teachers program are more confident in their parenting skills and knowledge, and read more to their child.

- Children's gains carry over to the early elementary grades, as evidenced by higher scores on standardized reading and math scores.

- Parents stay involved in their child's education, both at school and at home.

The school district also benefits because developmental delays in children are identified and resolved early!
