Three training stages, or sequences are emphasized. Stage I consists of familiarizing staff with program goals, philosophy, and techniques. Opportunity is provided for intensive practice in use of curriculum. Stage II consists of on job training. Stage III is an inservice stage concerning transition from a totally structured school experience to home visits accompanied by senior staff members.
