Home Based Training Resource Handbook. Revised Edition.
Fish, Debra, Ed.
Intended for use by professionals and trained para-professionals in the training of family day care providers, in-home caregivers, and, to some extent, foster parents, this handbook contains information and materials necessary to establish a training plan and offers nine training units plus a supplemental unit about toys. Discussed first are re-training activities for caregivers including initial contact; training needs assessment; and the initial interview. Then the training units are presented. Training units one through nine focus on (1) common concerns and problems experienced by newly licensed or beginning family day care providers; (2) observation of an individual child; (3) growth and development of infants and toddlers; (4) ages and stages of child development; (5) the home as a place for learning; (6) guiding behavior of young children; (7) self-esteem in young children; (8) health and safety; and (9) developing a positive relationship between parents and caregiver. The unit on toys provides information about selecting and using toys, and toy safety. Each unit includes information and suggestions for the trainer as well as a bibliography of selected books, filmstrips, pamphlets, and other resource materials. (RH)
