Commitment to Action

Parents as Teachers TeleHealth Initiative (PATTI)

Commitment by

Parents as Teachers

In 2015, Parents as Teachers (PAT) and the University of Southern California School of Social Work Telehealth™ Clinic committed to implement the first home visitation model via live, web-based video sessions in seven communities in California and Missouri. PAT, which developed a curriculum for parent educators to support and enhance strong parenting practices, will increase access to health and educational services for underserved populations by using interactive technology. The PAT Telehealth Initiative will be piloted with 20 families then launched with 100 families over three years to evaluate quality and outcomes of the service delivery to establish that it is as effective as receiving on-ground home visitation services.
