Parents as Teachers (P.A.T.) is a program that gives key information about early childhood development. P.A.T. provides in-home family support & education to help parents promote development, provide early detection of developmental delays and increase the child’s school readiness and success using the P.A.T. curriculum.
The Parent Educator provides weekly home/virtual visits to families who have been denied services from the Arizona Early Intervention Program, their local Developmental Preschool Program, and/or whose parents are concerned with their child’s development. The role of the Parent Educator is to work with and support family members and caregivers in children’s lives while ensuring all services provided are culturally relevant and linguistically appropriate for the population to be served; while following the policies and procedures of The Parents As Teachers Early Intervention Program. They will also conduct family-centered assessments and goal setting with the families, develop and deliver monthly Group Connections, connect families to outside resources and referrals, and provide coordination and advocacy for services needed to assist families in working towards their goals. Maintaining a caseload of 15 families, Parent Educators plan, deliver, and complete data entry within established timeframe policies and work cohesively with their teammates.
