Effective and High-Leverage Practices for Paraeducators
We all know it. Paraeducators are critical to special education. Many in the special education field are already using the High-Leverage Practices (HLPs) to address the most critical issues in special education. Paraeducators need these practices too—and we got you covered.
In collaboration with the Paraprofessional Resource & Research Center and the CEEDAR Center, the Council for Exceptional Children is excited to provide paraeducators with a learning program focused on your unique role as a paraeducator and how that aligns with specific HLPs. In this FREE on-demand, eLearning program designed for paraeducators, you will be introduced to four areas of high-leverage practice: Collaboration, Assessment, Social/Emotional/Behavioral, and Instruction.
