Helping Young Children Develop Self-Help Skills in a Bilingual-Multicultural Environment. Bilingual/Bicultural Child Development Associate Pilot Project: Module IX.
Coleman, Joyce H.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, the ninth in a series of 16, provides a guide to developing self-help skills in children in a bilingual, multicultural environment. Designed for bilingual/bicultural preschool trainees, the module discusses four principles of self-help development, lists factors to consider in planning self-help classroom exercises, and suggests facilitative changes teachers can make in the classroom setting. Teacher behaviors which can positively influence the development of children's self-help skills are emphasized. A chart indicates a sequence of self-help skill development from birth to 6 years of age. A self-help skills check list and check list guide are included. This module focuses on specific behaviors that directly relate to CDA Competency 3. (RH)
