Teacher Assistants or Paraprofessionals are critical participants when creating classrooms that are inclusive of all students. This workshop is specifically designed for paraprofessionals/teacher assistants and the teachers with whom they are paired. This workshop will focus on how to support and encourage the engagement of children with IEPs in classroom activities, while simultaneously facilitating student independence. The workshop will cover techniques for documenting children’s learning, communication structures between paraprofessionals and teachers, and supporting the classroom management routines of the teacher.
