Wetzel/Tyler County Parents as Teachers

About Us

The program consists of Parent Educators who have been certified by the National Center and meet ongoing competency-based training. These parent educators conduct home visits to provide information about stages of development, including general parenting guidance, tips on home safety, effective discipline and constructive play activities. Monthly group meetings, weekly play groups, periodic monitoring and formal screening of overall development, language, hearing and vision are also offered to participating families. Resource networks are provided to help families link with other local providers of special services beyond the scope of Parents as Teachers.
