   The goal of the Parents as Teachers Program (P.A.T) is to empower parents to be their child's best "first" teacher.  This is done through parent educators who visit families in their homes and share child development information, as well as through suggestions and ideas for activities that parents can do with their child to further encourage developmental skills.  The program also offers developmental, vision, and hearing screening to participants.  There is no costs at this time for the program.   Parents as Teachers is offered by each school district in the state of Missouri for  children prenatal until they reach Kindergarten entry.
