Paraeducator Training

  • Paraeducators are often an important part of programs that provide special education services and they typically work closely with students. Therefore, it is essential to provide valuable professional development to this significant group. This service is subsidized by IDEA Component II Funds.

    IDEA training and consultation coordinators provide paraeducator training opportunities based upon individual district or program needs. Customized modules incorporate relevant content drawn from a large library of topics.
