This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, one of a series of 18, provides the CDA intern with the knowledge and skills necessary for meeting the developmental levels and needs of individual children. Early sections stipulate the module's competency-based objectives, define terms, and suggest procedures by which trainees can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Subsequent chapters discuss identification of children with special needs, handicaps, staff training and preparation, community resources and referral, self-concept development, and activity development. The module also provides nine learning activities for the CDA intern. Also listed are books, pamphlets, films, and cassette tapes related to children with special needs. (MP)
