Parents, did you know?
Personal Home Visits:
Parent Meetings: Provide parents an opportunity to gain developmental information about their child and discuss development with other parents who have children the same age. The meetings also allow parents to socialize with other parents in their school district.
Screenings: are provided to assess language, personal-social, intellectual and motor development. Hearing and vision screenings are available. The goal of the screenings is to provide parents with information on the individual growth of their child and the early detection of potential problems that may affect later learning.
All children birth to age 5 can be screened regardless of participation with PAT. Please call our office to set up an appointment.
Group Connections: Parent/child activities where you can join with other parents as you discover more about your child's development.
Referral Resources: Resources are available to assist families in finding additional services when indicated through screening and requested by the parent.
PAT is a partnership between the home, the school, and the community to give all children the best possible start in life. The services are free to Lewis Co. C-1 residents. There are services for you and your child from birth to school entry.
