Library of Essentials Courses for Paraeducators Continues to Grow

 width=Recognizing that schools and districts have limited time and resources for professional development for paraeducators and other support staff, we continue to expand our library of Essentials Courses to help meet this critical need.


Essentials Courses are abbreviated versions of our full-length courses. These 15-20 minute courses help provide paraeducators and other support staff, especially those who work with students with exceptionalities, with a basic understanding of their roles and responsibilities and some foundational information about special education, behavior management, and some of the specific disabilities they may encounter.
