These case studies describe the design and implementation of eight selected Head Start Supplementary Training/Child Development Associate (HSST/CDA) programs.

Each case study, selected for its training methods, funding mechanisms, and geographic location is divided into two major sections. The first section consists of background information, including a description of the CDA Training Institution overseeing the program, the Head Start agency served, methods of funding and trainee characteristics. The second section discusses the CDA Training Program, including: staff responsibilities, format for training, training content and materials, procedure for awarding credit, methods of assessment and plans for program modification. Programs selected as case studies include the Region XVI Education Service Center, the Pinellas County Head Start Child Development and Family Services, Inc., the Tulare County Department of Education, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Elmira College, University of Southern Maine-Maine Children's Resource Center, Iowa State University, and the University of Washington.
