Paraprofessional training should share these key understandings and skills for working with students, teachers, and parents. Responsive strategies build a culture of excellence and trust in coordinating and delivering services to students.

Participants learn:

  • Effective interaction, communication, and teamwork
  • The paraprofessional’s role, responsibilities, and boundaries
  • Students’ exceptionalities, individualized educational plans, and confidentiality
