Training and Working with your Assistant Teachers and Paraprofessionals

One of the most frequent questions we get from special education teachers involves guidelines for training and working with assistant teachers and paraprofessionals. This arrangement can be rewarding or a disaster depending on how it is structured, defined, and managed. Most special educators have one or more paraprofessionals, aides or assistant teachers to help them. The best way to get the most from these assistants is by encouraging them to take responsibility for getting results in the classroom.

This issue of The Practical Teacher provides several techniques that can maximize the effectivness of all involved in the education of your students with special needs.
