Open Access Graduate Research Paper
More publications have been devoted to paraprofessional training within the last five years (Ender and Winston, 1984), an indication that higher education is becoming more aware of the need to utilize paraprofessionals and that training programs must be developed to adapt to this trend. A student paraprofessional is an undergraduate or graduate student without extended professional training who is specifically selected, trained, and given ongoing supervision to perform some designated portion of the tasks usually performed by the professional (Delworth, Sherwood, Casaburri, 1974). The paraprofessional is generally involved in the central activity of the agency with which he/she is associated.
