May, Deborah C.; Marozas, Donald S.
Education and Training of the Mentally Retarded, v16 n3 p228-31 Oct 1981
Questionnaires completed by 133 paraprofessionals working in classes for severely handicapped students revealed that the aides, mostly young and inexperienced, listed behavior management, individual training, feeding, and toileting their primary duties. However, many teachers' responsibilities, such as instructional planning, report writing, and testing, were also cited as aide duties. (CL)
