Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
This home visitor's handbook is one of seven publications designed to implement the Home-Oriented Preschool Education (HOPE) Program, which uses televised, mobile classroom, and parent instruction to educated 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds. It describes the HOPE program, and the home visitor's role, and provides guidelines for work with preschoolers and their parents. The home visitors' tasks include: (1) locating and enrolling children, (2) helping parents understand the program, (3) scheduling mobile classroom sessions, (4) arranging for children's physical examinations, (5) scheduling home visits, (6) keeping records, and (7) evaluation and testing. Suggestions for working with parents and children include get-acquainted activities, the planning of a "junk box" and "idea bank," and"do's and don't's" to remember. The general growth characteristics of children, ages 2-5 are outlined. Appendices include a sample home visitor's newsletter, a sample parents' guide, a home visitor's feedback information form, child data enrollment form, home visitor milage and time report form, and a list of materials for home visitors' kits.
