Evaluation Report of Format for Development of In-Service Training for Child Serving Sub-Professionals.
Para-professional personnel were recruited from various child-care agencies in the New Orleans area to participate in a training program. Questionnaires were used in selecting trainees. After the needs of the trainees were identified, trainees were selected who had the appropriate skills to deal successfully with these para-professional needs. The training staff developed curriculum inputs to be presented to the para-professionals. The inputs were developed and tested for relevancy. Objective tests were administered to the para-professionals to obtain a description of the population. The findings were valuable in assisting training staff to prepare relevant curriculum units. Also, posttesting was done to determine whether there were significant attitudinal changes resulting from the training program. Two pilot projects emerged from the training program. One served as an agent to help divert young people away from the courts and correctional institutions. The other emphasized the understanding of Spanish speaking culture and language. (Author)
