Home Visitor's Notebook
Gotts, Edward E., Ed.
This training manual for home visitor trainers and trainees was developed for use in home-based preschool programs. The notebook is part of a learning package which instructs prospective family workers, family worker trainers, and parents in the entry level skills, knowledge, and orientations needed to provide children from birth through 8 years of age with school oriented learning skills. (The training kit consists of 3 booklets: (1) the Home Visitor Trainer's Notebook; (2) the Parent's Notebook; and (3) the Home Visitor's Resource Materials.) Specifically, this notebook contains 10 teaching modules which present programmed instructions and written exercises for trainees on such topics as a home visitor's responsibilities, facilitating child development, developing one's own teaching skills, understanding learning skills in children, using common materials found in the home for projects, working smoothly and effectively with other people, health and safety factors, and using community and state information resources.
