WORKING WITH PARAPROFESSIONALS IN YOUR SCHOOL
Updated Resources on the Roles and Responsibilities
A special education paraprofessional, sometimes called a teacher’s aide or assistant, can be a real right-hand man (or woman) to the classroom teacher. Generally speaking, the para provides support to the teacher and especially to students with disabilities in the classroom who need modified instruction or assistance, as keeping with their Individualized Education Program (IEP). Many a student and teacher rely on the skills and presence of paraprofessionals at their side. This issue of NASET’s Working with Paraprofessionals in Your School will provide you with some updated resources and information on the roles and responsibilities of paraprofessionals.
