The Child Development Associate: What We Are Learning In Texas.
Carroll, E. Caroline
This address attempts to focus on some of the operational problems encountered in setting up five Child Development Associate Pilot Training Programs in Texas. Areas of concern include: (1) need for a clear statement of roles and responsibilities; (2) need for institutional support and flexibility; (3) recruitment, selection, and initial orientation of trainees; (4) cultural differences between supervisors/trainers and trainees; (5) selection of demonstration sites; and (6) concern for the affective domain in curriculum development. It was emphasized that many problem areas could be more effectively handled if CDA trainers had a greater commitment to competency-based training. (CS)
