The Bear Necessities for PAT
September 26, 2015
Do your families know about our Facebook page? We post our upcoming events, we post articles and will begin posting articles/websites that we would like parents to access. PLEASE remind them to like us while you are scheduling the next visit, they are placing that visit date in their phone, ask them right then to go look for us on Facebook!! Lee's Summit R7 Parents as Teachers
Group Connections for teens do count for DESE reimbursement, but they do not count for a "visit" as an affiliate family. To count as an affiliate family visit, a teen must be seen in the home.
Per PATNC, we must change our ENROLLMENT DATE to the date of the first visit. PLEASE make sure you change this, it really does matter regarding compliance on "Affiliate Status", especially in the areas of LSP and Screening.
High Needs Visits...YES they can be a 3-5 family
HIGH NEEDS - Look at the family...not just the children
3-5 Kiddos NON HIGH NEEDS
You will complete a new LSP on each affiliate family each year. Each LSP will have a new date.
The LSP should guide you in writing your goals.
If you do not have answers to LSP questions as you come close to that "First 90 Days" timeline, please indicate that you do not have the information and complete the assessment. Mark it as complete within VTW by 90 from first visit (which as it states above, is now your enrollment date).
Tracy is editing to include a sentence under "screening" to include the LSP. It currently says we screen children, it does not indicate that we screen families.
Please watch for a new copy on the shelves soon.
