The Changing Role of the Special Education Teacher...from the Classroom into the Community.
Goduto, Susan; Soby, Stanley F.
The paper gives a brief history of group homes for the severely handicapped, and describes a preservice/inservice training program developed for group home staff. The changing roles of the group home manager/special education teacher are seen to include personnel manager of paraprofessional and support staff, physical plant manager, pre- and in-service trainer, and vocational specialist. The use of competency based certificates is advocated as an approach to training group home managers. (SW)
