Paraprofessionals in Preschool Special Education: Conversations that Lead to Good Decision-Making for Children, Families and Schools
In 2012 PTAN convened clinical support group meetings to discuss paraprofessionals in preschool special education.  These meetings were in direct response to the priority identified in Regions 2 (Lakes Region) and 7 (Upper Valley) to discuss this topic.  SAU contributions to PTAN funded this activity.

Colleen Bovi, M.Ed., Education Consultant at SERESC joined us to facilitate a conversation about role descriptions, professional development needs and supervision of paraprofessionals in preschool special education.  Below are some of the handouts from this training.
