Missouri Parent Education Program Support
The activities in this project provide on-going professional development and program support designed to strengthen the Parents as Teachers Parent Education Programs in Missouri. Professional development enhances the knowledge base that informs parent educators and program supervisors of their roles and responsibilities and increases their competence in delivering services to families. A team of Missouri PAT Parent Education Consultants from across the state provide professional development opportunities that include:
Family Visit Consultations (FVCs);
Professional Learning Communities (PLCs);
Collaborative Networking Groups (CNGs); and
Program Assistance and Support (PAS).
These specific activities provide the opportunity for parent educators and program supervisors to enhance their knowledge and skills in implementing the Foundational Curriculum.
