Roles, Responsibilities, Professional Practices, and Ethics for Paraprofessionals



A DirectSTEP® eLearning course from LRP

This course covers an introduction to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, known as the IDEA, and its requirements relating to the role, training, and supervision of paraeducators. The course outlines the major roles and responsibilities of a paraeducator, including working closely with teachers, staff, and supervisors. Guidelines for working in all settings, from more restrictive pull-out settings to inclusionary settings where special education services are provided within the general education setting, will be covered. Topics covered include following policies and procedures, following the chain of command with questions and/or issues, and how to provide positive role models for students with special needs. Understanding and being sensitive to cultural differences and best practices in communicating with staff, students, parents, and administration will be covered in this chapter.
