Paraprofessionals in Preschool Special Education: Conversations that Lead to Good Decision-Making for Children, Families and Schools
On 3/13/12 and 10/3/12 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.
