    Since its inception, PAT has been carefully evaluated. Significant   findings attest to its benefits. Independent research studies have shown:

    • Children who participate in PAT are significantly advanced over their peers at age three in language development, problem-solving and social skills.
    • Early gains carry over into the elementary years.
    • Parent knowledge of child development increases significantly for all types of families.
    • Parents are significantly more involved in their child's schooling.
