Food For Thought Series - Sacramento

When & How to Effectively Use Paraeducator Support
Event Single


Single Workshop Registration
Paraprofessionals are an important and essential piece of the puzzle in providing educational services to students with disabilities under Section 504 and the IDEA. But, many teachers, site administrators, and district administrators are confused about the scope and limitations of the role. In this interactive presentation, attendees will learn best practices for utilizing the skills and services of paraprofessionals in the special education and general education environments. We will also discuss how to prepare appropriate fade plans, conduct assessments to evaluate a student’s need for a 1:1 aide, and respond to a parent request for a 1:1 aide. Presenters will also address frequently asked questions related to paraprofessionals, such as whether districts can require paraprofessionals to perform certain tasks, whether paraprofessionals can track a student’s progress on goals, and much more.
