Norsworthy, Gary F.
The emerging role of paraprofessionals in Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs is discussed. A definition is provided of the term paraprofessional, and a brief description is given of the typical person who assumes that role. Certain unique contributions of a paraprofessional to ABE programs and the task of recruiting paraprofessionals are explored. Possible duties of the paraprofessional are examined by use of several descriptive models. A setting for paraprofessional training is briefly described. Nine references for additional study are provided. (For related documents, see AC 014 525-530, 532-534.) (DB)
