Paraprofessional Home Visitor Training Programs: A Review of the Current Status of Preservice and Inservice Training.
Roberts, Richard N.; And Others
This report reviews the 248 home visiting programs serving children ages birth to 18 which provide a written training curriculum to their paraprofessionals. Programs were identified as part of a national survey of 4,162 potential home visiting programs (1,904 responses). Through a categorization process, 115 programs were identified as having valid home visitor/paraprofessional training manuals. The training programs were evaluated on the following variables: information presented to trainees, training techniques, length of training, incidence of on-going inservice training, incidence of post-training supervision, and presence of a trainee evaluation component. Based on the findings, suggestions of a theoretically optimum training sequence are offered. (DB)
