Developing Effective Paraeducators: Best Practices for Training


Paraeducators have long been on the front lines in schools and districts across the country, managing difficult learning and behavioral issues, often with limited resources. Staffing shortages and challenging student behavior are reported as being the biggest problems facing paraeducators today. With these current pressures in mind, it’s critical that paras receive targeted training to be more effective with students, develop cooperative relationships, create meaningful boundaries, and foster essential teaching skills.

Join this webinar to learn how to provide training and professional development to paraeducators in easy, succinct ways that meet everyone’s needs. In this session, you’ll:
