Supervision and Evaluation of Paraprofessionals.
Thomas, Lucinda E.
At a time when many agencies are suffering a cutback in funds, and money for new and innovative programs is limited, the use of more paraprofessionals in the helping professions can be very important. Professionals and administrators involved in program planning should carefully assess the contribution of paraprofessionals to the program. By using ingenuity and creativity, new roles for paraprofessionals can be found and services expanded and improved. The increased use of paraprofessionals is an important step in meeting the manpower needs of the helping professions. This paper looks briefly at several general methods for evaluating the role and functions of paraprofessionals. (Author/CKJ)
