Programs & Support

Parents As Teachers (PAT) Home Visiting

A professionally trained Parent Educator will visit your family each month to share information and resources about child development and parenting topics using the nationally acclaimed Parents As Teachers Curriculum.

 

This program is available at no cost to parents living in Eau Claire or Dunn County, who are expecting or adopting a baby, and/or who's child is under the age of 5.  Visits can be weekly, bi-monthly or monthly; and we aim to work with a family for at least two years. 

As a PAT family, you will receive: 

  • Personal Visits: During these visits, your Parent Educator will share age-appropriate child development and parenting information, help you learn to observe your child and address your parenting concerns.

  • Screenings: Assessment of your child's overall development as well as health, hearing and vision.  Assessment uses the acclaimed ASQ (Ages & Stages Questionnaire) and Milestones Moments.

  • Resource Network: This network will link your family to other community services.
