The Career Associate in Special Education (CASE) Program 1973-1976. Final Report.
Reid, Barbara; And Others
Presented is the final report of the Career Associate in Special Education (CASE) Program, a training program structured to prepare individuals to be teacher aides or teacher assistants in exceptional child education settings. Noted among problems encountered during the program was the lack of knowledge by professional staff as well as lack of insight into the possibilities and values of a differentiated staffing pattern. Significant events which resulted from the CASE program are reported as including the local acceptance of the program participants and program graduates; the wide acceptance of proposed programs for local, state, and national meetings and conventions; inclusion of CASE representatives at all levels of state planning; and the development of the Competency Based Format specifically designed for paraprofessional level training programs. Listed are a variety of activities geared toward dissemination of information about the CASE program. The bulk of the document consists of appended materials which include the following: course outlines, a manual with instructional requirements for five courses specifically designed for the training of auxiliary staff to work in exceptional child education settings; a checklist of paraprofessional ethical behavior for use by a supervising teacher; and instructions for using a variety of instructional equipment and materials.
