The second of two documents designed to train paraprofessionals to work with mainstreamed mildly handicapped children presents a teacher's guide approach to inservice and preservice training. The following four topics are covered in the section on preservice training (sample subtopics in parentheses): the teacher (forming a good working relationship, complementary roles); the students (the labeling process, changes in social attitudes, legal rights of the handicapped); the school (confidentiality, parent involvement); and the instructional process (program planning). Six units deal with the following inservice topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): assessment (formal and informal assessment); long-range objectives; short-range objectives (task analysis, chaining and reverse chaining); instructional strategies (decreasing inappropriate behaviors, establishing new behaviors); lesson planning (classroom organization); and lesson evaluation (self evaluation, evaluation of materials and activities).
