Special Education Updates

Paraeducators have evolved into becoming an essential part of the special education team in providing individualized services and play an increasingly prominent role in the instruction of individuals with exceptional learning needs at all ages. Additionally, special education paraeducators perform a wide variety of roles and responsibilities that support the instructional guidance of special education and regular education teachers, and the school community as a whole.  A growing number of special education resources are available to assist paraeducators with the expansion and complexity of their roles and responsibilities.
