"The 40 ESE paraeducator participants were excited to have a training designed especially for them. The Paraeducator Handbook that was used as a reference guide for the training was an integral part of our day. It's highlights included an overview of the requirements of IDEA, classroom management, team building and how it ties into the job of paraeducator and, in turn, how this can affect positive student achievement. I would encourage any District to utilize LEARN and this Paraeducator Handbook to support the great job that all paraeducators do for our students".

“The Paraeducator Handbook gave them a framework and definition of how big their job is. It also gave me a framework of activities and I knew exactly how to use it for my purposes with my group. Paras are very pleased with the training and never felt they had a clear grasp of their role until they had this handbook.”
