PACT: Parents and Children Together



Parents and Children Together (PACT) is an early language teaching programme that aims to provide parents with strategies, resources and activities to support their child’s early language development at home.

The PACT project series uses rigorous scientific research methodology to test the effectiveness of the PACT programme.
